This document explains how information about products and services, including environmental information, can be published on the Web using reference data which is also published on the Web.

The publishing of the information requires no expenditure on software tools. Instead the information can be represented by simple RDF/OWL files, created by hand and validated by public domain software. The major difficult faced by SMEs will be finding adequate reference data.

Once information has been published in this form, simple software can be used to collate information published about different products and services.
