This Technical Report outlines detailed guidance to streamline the quantification of greenhouse gas emissions for computers and monitors. Other audio, video and multimedia products, such as e-readers, phones, tablets, thin clients, workstations and storage equipment, can be included in future revisions of IEC TR 62921.
For this Technical Report, computers and monitors include notebooks, desktops, and liquid crystal display (LCD) monitors.
This Technical Report provides specific guidance for the use of streamlining techniques that minimize cost and resources needed to complete greenhouse gas emissions quantifications. In addition, the product category rules (PCR) section of this Technical Report recommends "state-of-the-art" process and data assumptions in order to reduce uncertainty. Lastly, this Technical Report provides an example of how a calculation could be performed.
