  2. 2. Fact Sheet CO2-Footprint of a Desktop-PC ESPRIMO E9900 The company How are the CO2e-emissions of the Desktop-PC Fujitsu is a leading provider of ICT-based business solutions for the global marketplace. ESPRIMO E9900 0-Watt distributed? The product 5% 42 % Raw materials Transport/Distribution The ESPRIMO E9900 0-Watt desktop PC is a reliable, power- Including transport of: saving small form factor PC. - Pre-products to assembly, - Extraction, treatment and transport - The desktop to the customer and of raw materials System boundaries - The desktop to Recycling Center in Paderborn - Manufacturing of pre-products The entire lifecycle has been considered concerning Total amount approx.: CO2-equivalents (CO2e) from the treatment of raw materials, 700 kg CO2 equivalents manufacturing of pre-products, through transport/distribution 52 % Use phase (use in Germany) and assembly, to the use phase, recycling and disposal. assumption: 1% Assembly - Use phase of 5 years Desktop and mainboard Functional unit - annual energy consumption of 114 kWh assembly in augsburg Desktop-PC ESPRIMO E9900 0-Watt including mouse, keyboard, (according to whitepaper energy consumption) Recycling manuals and packaging over a use phase of 5 years - Use in germany (german energy mix) By means of secondary raw materials from - Spare parts in proportion to their failure rate recycling and electricity/heat from waste incineration, CO2e-emissions can be avoided. The “avoided“ CO2e-emissions of recycling are deducted from the total Product Carbon Footprint.At what point do the most emissions occur?
