The Challenge

Despite nearly two decades of research into environmental life cycle assessments and their harmonisation there is still much to be done.

Different ways of measuring impacts, different limits and assumptions when gathering data and different assessment methods result in analyses which are difficult to compare. Society thrives on a diverse and complex economic structure that complicates the acquisition of reliable data. High quality data is needed to inform policy making and the effectiveness of data gathering is clouded by the aforementioned challenges. A consistent method of data gathering for assessing the resource use of products and services is necessary.
