Main output:

The main output consists of the overarching framework described in this page about displaying the environmental (and possibly social) effect of the products purchased (eg. through e-commerce), and the internalization of the unaccounted externalities (eg. cost carbon footprint). The idea proposes to use a Browser Plugin so that the user can see the sustainability/life cycle assessment score, and take actions to settle the externalities or add them to the user's personal climate accounting.
The proposal and research for producing a single sustainability score is presented within the nested page of: Single sustainability score. The Backend and data structure is presented within the nested page of: EcoWidgy - Consumer Disclosure Contracts, while the front-end plug in code is presented at the nested page: E-Shopping Browser Plugin.
