UNEP LCA Initiative

Printer-friendly versionSend to friend

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) are partnering to establish the best available practices in life-cycle assessment. The Life Cycle Inititative should go a long way toward harmonizing existing methods, databases, and life-cycle tools. This initiative is an important step in making information on the total environmental footprint of all materials, including those used in building, more accessible.
