Net Zero and Carbon Neutral Projects Tool

Tool for projects requiring more than just low carbon.

Differentiating with climate action

is not enough to lead

Nearly two thousand municipalities have declared a Climate Emergency, and over one thousand large corporations have committed to Science-Based Targets.

Differentiating with climate action is not enough to lead. The leading organisations develop and implement Net Zero Carbon and Carbon Neutrality* practises in their projects.

However, regular building LCA tools are not usually fit for the complex balancing act of net zero carbon design, which is made more complicated by the variations in different net zero carbon methodologies.

*Net Zero Carbon and Carbon Neutrality are used interchangeably, but your local definitions could vary.

How to achieve Net Zero requirements?

Introducing the One Click LCA Net Zero Carbon Tool

Empower project teams to quantify all carbon-emitting and carbon-reducing options in their projects to comply with local Net Zero Carbon definitions

Exported energy

Evaluate carbon-reducing impact of exported energy

Carbon sequestration

Evaluate carbon sequestration impact of either biogenic carbon storage stored in building or withdrawals in vegetation

Carbon offsets

Calculate the need for offsetting after other measures have been exhausted

Who is it for?


Design teams


Real estate developers

One Click LCA supports all schemes that require balancing emissions to Net Zero


Sweden Green Building Council

Carbon Neutral Building Definition

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get access to the One Click LCA Net Zero Carbon Tool?
The Net Zero Carbon Tool is available now as an add-on to any commercial One Click LCA subscription.
Which projects can I use it for?
Projects pursuing net zero carbon, carbon neutrality or projects wishing to evaluate the possibility of achieving one of the above
What is the scope of the assessment?
Whole-life carbon, comprising all life-cycle modules A-D, as well options for accounting biogenic carbon withdrawals in site vegetation and calculating biogenic carbon storage and offsets. Scopes and accounting parameters can be set by the user.
What are the modelling possibilities?
  • All normal building LCA optimization possibilities
  • Preservation of existing building elements
  • Reuse of products at end of life
  • Export energy from the building to offset emissions
  • Sequestrate biogenic carbon in materials and vegetation
  • Model carbonisation for cementitious materials
  • Balance results with verified carbon offsets
What impact categories are reported?
Global Warming Potential, which is split into three categories:

  • Carbon Emissions
  • Biogenic Carbon Storage
  • Carbon savings from materials reuse
  • Carbon savings from exported energy
  • Verified carbon offsets
  • Net Carbon
Is it compatible with other tools?
The Net Zero Carbon Tool is compatible with all other One Click LCA tools.

Note: As it supports a wide range of schemes, the One Click LCA Net Zero Carbon Tool may provide access to more data and a broader scope than your usual LCA tool.
