What is an Ecopoint? How can I explain Ecopoints to my colleagues?

An Ecopoint is the unit of measure of the environmental impact of a unit, product or material. The Ecopoint score is a single score obtained from the combined results of a life cycle assessment against the 13 impact categories identified in the BRE Environmental Profile methodology. The Ecopoint score is also relative to the impact of an EU citizen over one year: 100 Ecopoints = the environmental impact of 1 EU citizen over one year. The more Ecopoints a unit or design gets, the worse the environmental impact of that unit.
