Environmental labelling of mobile phones - Damien PRUNEL - Etienne LEES-PERASSO - 2014
This article deals with the environmental labelling scheme of mobile phones developed by SFR, a French telecommunications company. First of all, this article summarizes the LCA results uncertainties caused by two main aspects: the need to update life cycle inventories datasets (LCI datasets) faces the lack of availability of these data with the manufacturers and the need to develop the methodology to monitor the market and scientific advances. Secondly, the article will address various solutions that have been implemented in relation to these issues. Finally this article will detail the future challenges about methodological and standardisation.
