Hi, I don´t know how to deal with this: When comparing climate impact (contribution of CO2 released to atmosphere) of different types of insulation, how do I compare the positive and negative impact? I want to compare this materials: CORK 59 kg/m2 EPS +23 kg/m2 WOOL +96 kg/m2 __________ I can say that WOOL has 4,17 times bigger contribution than EPS. How many times bigger is contribution of WOOL or EPS in comparison with CORK? (mathematicaly 1,63 times, but that as an explanation doesn´t make sense, it´s not possible to imagine) I will be very happy for help.
