Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

NSF Sustainability develops life cycle assessments (LCAs), verifies environmental product declarations (EPDs) and develops product category rules (PCRs). An LCA is a transparent, ISO 14040-based analysis of the life cycle environmental impacts of a product, system or service, including raw material acquisition, production, use and end of life. By identifying the critical impact categories, you can reduce environmental impacts where they benefit the most.

An LCA alone is an important tool. However, to compare your LCA data and results with external data, requires a PCR that defines how to conduct the LCA and report your findings. The report of your results, the EPD, provides a consistent framework for comparing results.
