Life cycle assessment

Construction products used in a scheme account for a substantial portion of its life cycle environmental impact, making it important to make use of efficient products. A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is used to understand, consider, and reduce the environmental impact of construction products. A focus of LCA appraisal is to encourage the selection of construction products with the low embodied emission, as to reduce the overall environmental impact of the scheme through its intended life cycle.

Although increasing regulations has led to marked decline in operational emissions of buildings, the next natural step to reduce emissions in the industry (as identified by BRE) is to target aspects of buildings responsible for embodied carbons (i.e. construction products and material). Responsible selection of construction products (enabled by LCA) allows schemes to demonstrate advanced environmental competency towards climate change and other regulatory obligations.
