Results | Statistics / Product - Doughnut diagram

Luc

Hi there everyone. I'm Luc Hillege and today I will explain you a little bit more about results in Ecochain. Specifically, the donut-diagram. Which is our famous figure that a lot of our clients publish and share.

So, how do you retrieve the doughnut diagram?

If you have your product portfolio and if you click on one of the bar charts, then you get the overview of our donut diagrams.

So, how does this figure work?

In this case, you have two products that you can compare to one another. It actually looks like an onion and you can have to peel down the layers to understand them. So in the inner circle you have the distribution between impacts. Amongst materials, transports, and processes.

In green: contribution of materials to the impact. Contribution of transports to the total impact. And the contribution of processes to the total impact.

You have to make sure that you use the same indicators to represent your end results.

As I was explaining, you have an inner layer with materials, transports and processes. The second layer demonstrates which raw material is responsible for which share. So for example, CEM, which is cement, has an impact of six euros of a total of nine point 11.

If you look into concrete sand: in this case, it has a contribution of one point 17 euros the total impact of nine point 11 euros. In this case, gravel, one point 53 euros of impact of the total of nine point 11 euros of material impact. Every part is described.

You see the same for transport, which has a truck. And then inland waterway ship.
