World’s highest rated LCA software for BREEAMBest LCA software for BREEAM
BRE’s rating for BREEAM Int’l 2016 LCA tools confirmed One Click LCAs leadership for the third time in a row. The platform supports several additional credits, for a max of 19 credits. In spite of this extensive scope, the tool is extremely easy to use and efficient, according to users.
Best LCA for BREEAM 2013, 2015 and 2016 – third time is the charm!
One Click LCA is the only software able to deliver maximal LCA credits for any BREEAM International project anywhere in the world (2009 and 2010 versions included). The tool was now rated highest performing by BRE for the third time in a row, and it also delivers the exemplary credit from Mat 01. This is a really nice bonus on top of the vast time savings you’ll achieve by getting a Life-Cycle Assessment done in hours instead of weeks.
Many BREEAM experts have worked in the past with Green Guide to get their Mat 01 credits. The 2016 version definitely puts one more nail on Green Guide’s coffin, as it’s only worth a single Mat 01 credit. This follows the policy of BRE’s recent briefing paper.
The One Click LCA earns maximal Mat 01 credits, and the platform powers many other tools for BREEAM projects and can support a total of 19 credits.

Key takeaway: you will achieve more credits than with any other software, faster than ever before.
