A life-cycle analysis looks at the product through its entire life – from when it is first manufactured, through when it is used, and finally what happens when it is no longer being used. Carbon emissions are present through the entire process for some products. Consider a CFL lightbulb, for example. A life-cycle analysis would consider the carbon emissions of making each of the parts of the bulb. It would also account for transportation where it is used, the carbon emissions associated with the electricity it uses over its lifetime, and finally the emissions associated with recycling its parts. The sum of these emissions gives us a pretty thorough sense of how large of an environmental impact the bulb has.
