Free registration required

Executive Summary

To comply with international standards for carbon footprinting (PAS 2050, ISO 14040, and the upcoming ISO 14067), a product carbon footprint has to account for emissions from cradle to grave - that is, from initial resource extraction to final disposal, including manufacturing, use-related impacts, and transportation or shipping. PE International deployed high-quality process-based datasets which accurately represent typical electronic components. PE International, creators of the GaBi 4 Life Cycle Inventory databases, provides market-leading environmental impact databases for creating product carbon footprints, including an electronics-specific emissions database.
