    This web-page and its contents reflects simple (open-source) calculations based on publicly available MRIO databases. The use of this data means the acceptance of the terms of use of the databases providing this data. A huge amount of work goes into constructing these databases, and the results presented here are a simple analysis of the data. Users are referred to the respective database homepage for further information. The results presented here are a (near as possible) harmonization of environmental impact categories across the databases.
