carbon embodiment data

What is carbon embodiment?

Just how products come with data sheets that tell you all about their features, specifications, and what they’re made of? Well, carbon embodiment data sheets are like that, but for the environment.

They’re cheat sheets that show you how much carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases were emitted during the whole life of a product – from making it, using it, and even when it’s thrown away or recycled; tracking the product’s carbon footprint from the moment it’s built to the day it’s recycled.

At OE we believe in honesty and transparency, which is why we’ve put together a collection of carbon embodiment (CO2e) sheets to give you an idea of how “clean” or “dirty” something is in terms of its environmental impact. It’s our way of helping you to be more aware of how your purchases can affect the environment so that you can make smarter purchasing choices.
