LCA Database Helpdesk

A key factor hampering the use of life cycle thinking in policy-making and environmental decisions, in countries around the world, is the lack of regionally representative data for Life Cycle Assessments (LCA). Having regionally representative data for LCA is key for measuring resource efficiency, environmental impacts and even circularity in our products and economies.

The Helpdesk is for individuals and entities wanting to increase LCA data availability by driving national LCA database development in their respective countries or regions.
