GWP100 total Global warming potential

Global warming potential: Contribution of greenhouse gas emissions to global warming

The indicator "GWP, total" includes both the contribution of greenhouse gas emissions to global warming and the amount of carbon dioxide stored in biomass.
The global warming potential is given for a time horizon of 100 years (GWP100) and in kg-CO2 equivalents. The characterization factors according to ÍNORM EN 15804, Annex C are used for the calculation. For LCA data of an older date (before the publication of ÍNORM EN 15804: 2014) the characterization factors according to CML 2001 v3.9 were used.

Evidence: Life Cycle Assessment according to "Criteria for inclusion of product-specific LCA data in the baubook".
