How to comply with the Danish BR18 regulations using One Click LCA? 

One Click LCA’s new tool LCA according to Bygningsreglementet makes it easier to comply with the scope, database requirements, and other requirements of the regulation.

Perform LCA according to scope

  • A1-A3, B4, B6, C3, C4, and D life cycle stages are included in the LCA analysis
  • The climate impact is calculated in units of kg CO₂ equivalents per m² per year over a period of 50 years
  • The specific rules for area calculation is included in the analysis

Use EPDs for materials/products

When calculating the climate impact, EPDs must be used for each material or product.

One Click LCA intergrates data from nearly all of the available EPD platforms around the globe, including EPD Danmark, Ecoinvent, EPD hub and more.

Choose sustainable products from a BR 18 compliant Database

In addition to EPDs, the tool allows using Danish generic database (BR18), which is based on Okobaudat data.

The tool supports both EN15804 +A1 and EN15804 +A2 data, of which the calculation rules are explained per life cycle stage.
