Summary
Functional unit: 
Distance Covered
Goal and scope of the summary: 
With this study Audi is able to demonstrate how a vehicle’s effects on the environment have changed as compared with the previous model when assessed over the vehicle’s entire life cycle, from production through use all the way to recycling. Audi’s experts assume for assessment purposes that vehicles will cover a distance of 200,000 kilometres. They not only take into account the emissions caused when the vehicle is being driven, but also those that occur when the fuel is produced. At the end of the vehicle’s life cycle, the energy needed for recycling is also included in the assessment.
