Answers to questions asked during the webinar:

Q: The YKK zipper-data comes from Japan, is there a difference in impact for zippers produced in China?
A: A different production location may result in slightly different impacts because of a different energy-mix used. The zipper-data reflects the zipper’s main production location and the data will be updated if the main production location for this product changes. That saying, when calculating the impact of a zipper (from the same material) produced in another country, the zipper-data from Japan is a good proxy to use.
