Summary N

This Eco-indicator calculator was developed based on the PR Consultant's Eco-indicator 99 methodology.
The calculator provides simple, pre-formatted forms that you would need to carry out the Eco-indicator assessment, and
calculate the eco-indicator scores based on the standard indicators as defined by the PR in the Eco-indicator 99, Manual for
Designers.
All you need to do is to identify and quantify the materials and processes involved in producing a unit of the product analysed
as input to the this workbook. For example, types and weight of the materials, types and distance of transportation.

The results would be displayed in the report summary.

Product Eco-Indicator Calculation Report

The Eco-indicator calculation shows the environmental impact of the product throughout its life cycle. The higher the Eco-indicator value is, the bigger the impact it
has to human health, ecosystem quality and natural resources.
The table and graphs below indicate the Eco-indicator distribution of the anaysed product in its three life cycle stages i.e. Production, Use and End-of-life.
