    No tengo clara a idea de la contraposición entre upstream y dwnstream costs. Por ejemplo

    "This method also attemps to include the embodied or upstream costs, that are associated with the use of construction materials such as the energy inputs.."

    Upstream costs: costs of production/development
    Downstream costs: costs of sales/distribution, writeoffs
