Analysis of Data & Methods in the SAC MSI

You are here

This paper provides a comprehensive review of the public SAC MSI methodology, database and SAC communications of relevance, with reference to the International Standards from the 14040 and 14020 series, and the European Commission Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) guidelines.

The authors identify significant inconsistencies and risks to the scientific robustness of the MSI, particularly with regard to natural fibres. The authors also identify potential solutions to these issues within the framework of LCA standards and best practice.
