Although Recommendation 2013/179/EU promotes the use of the environmental footprint to assess and communicate the environmental performance of organizations throughout their life cycle, they are choosing, as a starting point, the carbon footprint. In Spain, different tools have been developed for this purpose, among which the "Carbon Footprint Calculator" of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, Food and Environment of the Government of Spain and the "Carbon Footprint Calculation Tool" of IHOBE-Public Society of the Basque Government stand out. At a more general level, commercial Life Cycle Analysis tools such as SimaPro or Gabi, also allow the calculation of the carbon footprint using international commercial inventory databases. The objective of this communication is to compare the results obtained when the same organization is modeled using different carbon footprint tools. The ceramic sector has been chosen as a case study. For this, primary data belonging to different companies of this industrial sector has been collected and different mitigation actions proposed. After modeling each one using the carbon footprint available tools, a comparative analysis has been undertaken.
