Do anyone know the detailed environment impacy factors used in SolidWorks Sustainability 2012?

Question asked by Harvey C on Apr 8, 2013

Hi community,


One of my clients is using solidworks sustainability to estimate the life cycle assessment, especially, on carbon footprint. He also invite us to verify the carbon footprint according to a British standard, PAS 2050.

However, the standard strictly requires the carbon footprint calculation should using the latest IPCC’s GWP value as environment impact factors. We already know the latest GWP values were from IPCC forth assessment report. The problem is we cannot confirm which version of GWP value is adapted in solidworks because the system runs the calculation process internally.

Can anyone advise me where I can find the relevant information or how I can learn this information?
