... Life cycle impact assessment was performed using the ReCiPe 2016 midpoint impact assessment method and 100-year global warming potentials (based on the characterization factors developed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) 91,92 . Following the impact assessment, we carried out a contribution analysis to assess the impacts of different processing steps during cement production on GHG emissions (Fig. S8, Supplementary Information). ...
... As one of the major threats to life, climate change has various root causes, including greenhouse gases (GHGs) emissions, the primary air pollutant (IPCC, 2013). To put it differently, as GHG emissions are among the active players in the complicated relationship between air pollution and climate change (Xu & Lamarque, 2018), cities are considered as a critical contributor to this issue. ...
... The work of the IPCC is synthesized in Assessment Reports (AR) which are released at regular intervals. The fifth AR [1] indicates the foremost importance of the greenhouse gases and of the aerosols emitted by human activities on the energy budget of the Earth. This budget quantifies the radiative energy reaching the Earth and the outcoming energy. ...
