Reasons for Submitting Data

Providing data on the production processes can offer various benefits for companies, industrial associations and research institutes and many have helped to generate inventory data for the ecoinvent database.

 

ecoinvent provides the review process for free. You give us permission to publish your data in the database and your time for the submission. We give you technical support during the datasets creation and submission and the external review.

 

In a few, justified cases unit process information may also be kept confidential by submitting datasets as restricted datasets, in which case only the cradle-to-gate results will be visible for the database users.

Benefits of Submitting Data

The availability of independently reviewed and accepted inventory data on your products and supply chain offers many benefits.
