Forest Industry Carbon Assessment Tool

The Forest Industry Carbon Assessment Tool™ (FICAT™) was developed by NCASI for the International Finance Corporation of the World Bank Group. Based on the Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI) Carbon Footprint Framework, FICAT is primarily designed to help characterize the life cycle greenhouse gas impacts of the activities associated with mills or companies producing forest products.

Footprints developed using FICAT include consideration of manufacturing emissions, carbon storage impacts, upstream emissions, and end of life effects.
