Ericsson and their LCA’s – Highlighting the ‘Products in Operation’ Phase
It’s great to see my ex-colleagues at Ericsson are making progress at reducing the impact of their products.
Back in 2008, Ericsson set a five-year target to reduce carbon emission intensity by 40% across their own activities and the life-cycle impacts of their ‘Products in Operation’ phase.
Direct emissions are minimal compared to their products, as you can see below. This confirms again, as with most companies, how critical the ‘Products in Operation’ phase thinking is.
On page 19 of their sustainability report, you can find their LCA results.
