Abstract

Life cycle assessment (LCA) is the primary methodology that supports ISO standards for carbon footprint analysis, IPCC greenhouse gas inventories, climate change related energy policies and regulations, environmental product declaration, and more recently circular economy and plastic neutral. The science behind the LCA methodology is still evolving and the practice of LCA principles is critical for the value of information derived from the LCA results.
