The investment will help position One Click LCA as the definitive end-to-end sustainability software platform for construction and manufacturing.
One Click LCA is a world-leading decarbonization platform for the construction and manufacturing industries. Today, we announce a €40M investment from PSG Equity (PSG), a leading growth equity firm partnering with software and technology-enabled services to accelerate international growth, and InfraVia Capital Partners (InfraVia), a leading independent European private equity firm running four investment theses across infrastructure, technology, critical metals, and real estate. The investment will boost R&D, accelerate delivery of enterprise solutions, fund global expansion, and enable M&A — positioning One Click LCA as the definitive end-to-end sustainability software platform for construction and manufacturing.
One Click LCA’s mission is to power the makers of a zero-carbon future with its powerful, global life-cycle assessment (LCA), environmental product declaration (EPD), and sustainability solutions. We connect the full construction value chain, from property portfolio owners to manufacturers, applying a scientific approach to measuring, reporting, and reducing carbon — along with the calculation of other sustainability metrics for projects and products in the built environment.
Our decarbonization platform supports thousands of customers in +150 countries, including blue-chip enterprises such as Skanska, AECOM, WSP, Foster+Partners, LafargeHolcim and Saint Gobain. Our platform includes LCA tools in compliance with +70 standards and certifications, including LEED, BREEAM, GRESB and other national regulations, and includes a unique global LCA database.

We facilitate analysis of whole-life carbon, LCA, and sustainability assessment for buildings, infrastructure, and manufacturing — including early-stage analysis, design optioneering, benchmarking, and decarbonization tools. We enable manufacturers to generate and publish EPDs digitally for manufactured goods and construction products. Our platform also seamlessly integrates with +15 of the most widely used BIM software tools, including Autodesk Revit®, Tekla Structures® and Bentley iTwin®.
With PSG’s and InfraVia’s support, One Click LCA will boost investment in R&D and growth, including M&A across construction and manufacturing verticals with the ambition to become the leading end-to-end global sustainability platform for all stakeholders covering carbon, biodiversity, circularity, and beyond.
“Climate change is one of the biggest threats facing society. With the global building stock set to double in the next forty years, generating 230 gigatons of embodied carbon, we must critically scale-up action to decarbonize construction and manufacturing,” says Panu Pasanen, Founder and CEO of One Click LCA. “We believe our partnership with PSG and InfraVia marks a new phase of growth as we accelerate toward supporting one million users with LCA, EPD, and other sustainability software.”

Alban Wyniecki, Partner, InfraVia says: “As the world commits to carbon neutrality, the opportunity ahead for One Click LCA is massive. InfraVia has been a significant stakeholder of the infrastructure and construction industry through its flagship investment strategy in infrastructure over the past 15 years. Consequently, we are very excited to support Panu and One Click LCA in bringing sustainability to our ecosystem and more generally the broader construction manufacturing industry.”
