Environmental design: LCA, LCC and Carbon Footprint

Mate­ri­als are one of the most cru­cial com­po­nents of build­ing design. Quan­ti­fy­ing the car­bon foot­print of the­se mate­ri­als has sev­er­al design ben­e­fits. With One Click LCA, you can quan­ti­fy CO2 instant­ly by using the stan­dard­ized Life-Cycle Assess­ment, among oth­er among oth­er envi­ron­men­tal impact cat­e­gories.

Environmental metrics grow in importance

Car­bon foot­print of your build­ing is grow­ing in impor­tance each day. Quan­ti­fy­ing and opti­miz­ing it makes for bet­ter invest­ments, wins new clients and is demand­ed by reg­u­la­tors and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion schemes. Life-Cycle Met­rics — LCA & LCC — act as key frame­works in quan­ti­fy­ing the CO2 foot­print of a given sys­tem.
