Global warming requires to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in global supply chains. In order to reduce the GHG emissions in the supply chains economically, it needs to estimate the GHG emissions and costs for procuring parts for materials by life cycle assessment (LCA). This study applies the material-based estimation method for the GHG emissions and costs by Yoshizaki et al. (2016) to a cell phone, constructs a bill of materials (BOM) when the materials for parts are produced in Asian countries, and compares the material-based GHG emissions and costs in the cases of cell phone and cleaner.
