EcoDesign Tools

EcoDesign Tools are simplified LCA software tools. The following were developed using ecoinvent data in the background.

Using ecoinvent data in your ecoDesign tool

EcoDesign Tools Based on ecoinvent

These are just a few of the EcoDesign tools relying on either ecoinvent version 2 or version 3 data.

Air.e HdC

 

Air.e HdC is a professional software tool designed for Carbon Footprint experts to help them in calculating and assessing GHG emissions of organizations, products, services, events, and projects using a life cycle approach. Air.e HdC has been developed to follow international standards such as ISO 14040, PAS 2050, GHG Protocol, ISO 14064, ISO 14064 and ISO 14069.

Paper Metrics®

 

Paper Metrics® is an IT application developed by Ecofolio, the French Paper PRO (Produce Responsibility Organisation), a non-profit private company entrusted by French authorities. Ecofolio is responsible for paper recycling in France. Suppliers of printed products traditionally include information on quality, cost and deadlines on their quotations. Thanks to Paper Metrics®, the quotations will now also feature the environmental footprint of the product.

European Residual Mixes

 

European Residual Electricity Mixes are needed for reliable disclosure of electricity consumption where Guarantees of Origin are not used. Consumers can demand electricity based on the electricity's environmental attributes (e.g. origin and GHG emissions) through the voluntary purchase of GOs. According to the Electricity Market Directive, all electricity suppliers are required to disclose their electricity portfolio, specifying the emissions of CO2 and the amount of radioactive waste.

Creating an EcoDesign Tool on the Basis of ecoinvent

If you are interested in creating an EcoDesign Tool using ecoinvent data please contact us at support@ecoinvent.org to discuss the possibilities of using ecoinvent data for your tool.

 

As stated in the EULA (7.3 Restrictions of use) users are not entitled to reproduce, disseminate or publicly display any significant portions of the ecoinvent database or the ecoinvent datasets. An additional agreement is therefore required to base your EcoDesign Tool on ecoinvent data.
