Abstract
Requests for environmental component data are passed through the supply chain and component manufacturers face the growing need to serve these inquiries. Whereas the passive components industry learned to handle material declaration requests by developing Umbrella Specifications, the field of CO2 or energy profiles lacks harmonization and clear and credible guidance, how to compile such datasets. There are several thousand different types of passive electronic components and it is neither feasible to compile and maintain datasets for all of them, nor would such level of detail be of much added value for carbon footprint calculations given the general uncertainties of such assessments. An abridged and harmonized model is required and to follow with such a model the approach of the material Umbrella Specifications might lead to an efficient, transparent and manageable solution. The objectives of this guidance document are to reduce the data intensity of environmental assessments for passive components, including connectors.
