Carbon emissions are generated at each stage of a product’s life cycle, from production of the raw materials, to manufacturing, delivery, use of the product at home and finally disposal or recycling. A product’s carbon footprint can vary widely across these different stages and companies can use this information to help them identify the most effective ways to cut emissions.
