  • One Click LCA has the largest construction LCA database on the market, with more than 10.000 construction datasets, and integrates with all common design tools, including Revit, BIM, IES, DesignBuilder, Solibri, and more

Carbon Heroes Benchmark Program

In cooperation with Chile Green Building Council, Dutch Green Building Council, Irish Green Building Council, Hungary Green Building Council, Romania Green Building Council, Green Building Council Italia, Statsbygg, and other world leaders in sustainable construction, we have created a building carbon benchmark program with the target of establishing carbon benchmarks for 1000 buildings.

This program builds on detailed, Level(s)-compliant building LCAs conducted by users and allows obtaining very fine breakdowns of materials use as well as carbon intensity, including documented building types and scopes of analysis.

Sustainable performance delivered

Some of our public reference projects include:

  • European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), consultancy
    work for a Construction Materials Efficiency project
  • Roadmap for building life-cycle carbon footprint regulation for Finnish Ministry of the Environment
  • The Embodied Carbon Review: Embodied carbon reduction in 100+ regulations and rating systems globally, made possible with the support of Stora Enso, Saint-Gobain, Finland’s Ministry of the Environment and The Finnish Transport Agency
  • Developing a program for climate change adaptation standards development for buildings and construction for CEN based on European Commission Mandate M/256
  • Using BIM in social housing sustainability development – for the Housing Finance and Development Centre of Finland
  • Creating BIM Model Checker for ensuring the quality of automated LCA
