vehicle and thus its carbon footprint and compares it to the energy consumption and carbon footprint of a vehicle with an internal combustion engine. The results of this study reveal the orientation for the use of electric vehicles in future, in terms of raising awareness among the individual manufacturers, consumers and, last but not the least, the society as a whole, which is committed to sustainable developmental orientations.

carbon footprint was determined using the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) method. The water footprint was calculated using the Hoekstra method. The environmental footprints were provided by the SimaPro 8 package with the Ecoinvent 3 database. The obtained results showed that the carbon footprint and water footprints of electric passenger cars in Poland are primarily related to the type of electricity used to charge electric car batteries. The results showed that current and future

The purpose of this paper is to provide a comparative environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) of chosen internal combustion engine vehicles (ICEVs). It addresses an LCA of both petrol-fuelled and diesel-fuelled passenger cars. The analyses pertained to the carbon footprint and respiratory inorganics related to the cars in question, considered against the relevant system from cradle to grave. The comparative analysis has shown that the carbon footprint of a diesel-fuelled car is lower than

in scope and structure from the other two. And is used to assess the life cycle of the product, simplifying the damage categories to three basics: human health, ecosystem quality and resource reduction. This method was introduced in the form of software systems supporting the ecological evaluation of product development in the product life cycle .
Another very important aspect is the calculation of the carbon footprint. A carbon footprint is the sum of gas emissions during the full life cycle
