Ecoindicator '99

by: Gorka benito 14 January 2013, 9:37:06 AM (GMT +1)

Just a quick thoughts about considering including Ecoindicator '99 as "Other environmental impacts".

1) The Ecoindicator '99 Manual for designers says (page 9, use and limitations): "The standard Eco-indicator values are not intended for use in environmental marketing, for environmental labellling or for proving in public that product A is better than product B"

2) In the year 2008 a new methodology was created combining Ec'99 and CML methodologies concepts, updating the base lca data and creating the RECIPE Methodology. The concepts of Eco-indicators are present here also, but it's also a a mid-point Methodology. http://www.lcia-recipe.net/
Why not use this reviewed methodology instead of the Ec'99?

Dear Benito, Thank you for your comment. The Technical Committee agreed with your comment, and asked the PCR Moderator to remove any weighted indicator from "other environmental indicators". Best regards, Kristian Jelse, Secretariat of the International EPD System
