The creation of reliable, consistent and transparent regionalised Life Cycle Inventories (LCI) represents a core purpose of the SRI programme. The LCI component of the SRI project provides a basis for informed decision-making on the sustainability of products and developments in other components of SRI project. The main goal is to establish and provide regional LCIs for the use in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) studies, environmental product declarations, carbon foot-printing and similar assessment tools. The ecoinvent Association, as the leading global supplier of transparent LCI data, is in charge of developing the basis for national LCI data in South America (Brazil, Colombia, Peru), South Africa, and India.This report was prepared as part of the Sustainable Recycling Industries programme (SRI). The SRI programme has built on the success of implementing e-waste recycling systems with various developing countries for more than ten years. SRI is funded by the Swiss State Secretariat of Economic Affairs (SECO) and is implemented by the Institute for Materials Science & Technology (EMPA), the World Resources Forum (WRF) and the ecoinvent Association.
