ATIEL and UEIL Announce the Establishment of a Joint Sustainability Committee

On 13th June 2024, ATIEL and UEIL established the formation of the ‘ATIEL & UEIL Joint Sustainability Committee’. Having previously worked closely together on the ‘Methodology for Product Carbon Footprint Calculations for Lubricants and Other Specialities’, the inaugural meeting held in Brussels formally brings together the ATIEL Sustainability and the UEIL Sustainability Committees. The purpose of the Joint Sustainability Committee is to work on matters of mutual interest related to environmental and legislative drivers, including but not limited to the European Green Deal. The Joint Sustainability Committee, chaired by Markus Garb (UEIL) and co-chaired by Mika Kettunen (ATIEL), will focus initially on Product and Corporate Carbon Footprint, Lubricant Use-Phase (including Avoided Emissions), End-of-Life (including Circularity) and Eco-Design for Sustainable Products.

TÜV Rheinland validates the ATIEL and UEIL methodology to calculate and report Product Carbon Footprints (PCFs) for Lubricants and Other Specialities.

Today we are delighted to announce at the ATIEL Technical Seminar ‘The Lubricants Industry Driving Change’, that TÜV Rheinland Energy GmbH has successfully reviewed the ‘Methodology for Product Carbon Footprint Calculations for Lubricants and Other Specialties (Revision 1)’ and confirmed that it is compliant with international standards for calculating product carbon footprints, the first time such a validation has been conferred on a cradle-togate PCF methodology for the Lubricants, Grease and Specialties industry, anywhere in the world.
