How does the Eco Repair Score® relate to CO2 emissions or other negative impacts on the environment?

Sustainability studies usually tend to be confined to determining CO2 eq. emissions, or the so-called “global warming.”

However, it is now widely accepted in the scientific community that 18 environmental impact categories can be identified, which must be taken into account in order to get a full picture of environmental impacts. These 18 environmental impact categories, which are calculated in the Eco Repair Score®, are:

  • CO2 eq. emissions (global warming)
  • Formation of the ozone hole
  • Ionising radiation
  • Ozone formation (human health)
  • Ozone formation (earth)
  • Particulate matter emissions
  • Acidification
  • Eutrophication (freshwater)
  • Ecotoxicity (soil)
  • Ecotoxicity (marine)
  • Carcinogens (human)
  • Carcinogens (other than human)
  • Land use
  • Depletion of mineral resources
  • Depletion of fossil resources
  • Water consumption

As the sole calculation method that consistently determines the 18 impact categories, the Eco Repair Score® is also the most comprehensive calculation method on the market.
