How much would companies carbon footprint go up if they were responsible for the emissions of their products for the entire life of the product?

    This, of course, depends on what products you are referring to. Most products that don’t require a source of power to run don’t emit much more than what they cost to manufacture. You do have to account for end-of-life considerations, like the energy it costs to trash it. This is usually not that much. Electrical products, however, could cause a huge increase in the carbon footprint. For example, incandescent lightbulbs are very cheap to manufacture but use a lot energy to provide light.
