Does the Ecoscore calculation take into account the production and recycling phase of the vehicle?
As previously mentioned in the first question, the answer is no. Very few standardised data are available on the production and recycling phase of a vehicle, and certainly not for all vehicles available on the Belgian market. Taking into account these two phases would then imply that we cannot assign an Ecoscore to every vehicle. Moreover, some studies provide evidence of the fact that the pollutants emitted during the well-to-wheel phase constitute circa 90% of the total environmental impact.
