Why launch One Click LCA Planetary?
We believe now it’s time to change the gear. Embodied carbon efficiency must become the standard, and the market is more ready for this. According to our analysis, we need to have significant improvement on 10 000 major projects each month to have an impact at a planetary level.
How is One Click LCA Planetary different from other existing solutions?
- It is a planetary solution: available everywhere, in nine languages, with a global database. This makes it suitable for example for global investors or other global organisations.
- It provides both materials efficiency and embodied carbon metrics at once, not just carbon.
- It provides global generic (average) impact database as well as global EPD database. All data in the software has undergone a rigorous verification and qualification process.
- It allows requesting manufacturers to Send Me Data for more EPDs. Manufacturers can use One Click LCA Pre-Verified EPD Generator to create the EPDs time- and cost-efficiently.
- It provides a library of assemblies for modelling complex structures easily.
In addition, it is built on One Click LCA, the worlds #1 building LCA platform, which allows users who need more capabilities to easily extend the solutions at their disposal.
Why is embodied carbon important?
Is anyone regulating embodied carbon? Should it not be handled by regulations?
Embodied carbon, as other greenhouse gas emissions, are in addition of private interests, clearly a case for public interest. Policy examples for national regulators and standard-setters have been discussed in Embodied Carbon Review and policies for cities are coming out soon in City Policy Framework for Dramatically Reducing Embodied Carbon.
What is the business benefit of embodied carbon reduction?
Embodied carbon transparency and reductions are also valued by investors, tenants and regulators. Being able to guide a project from embodied carbon point of view may make you stand out and gain a client’s trust, and secure future business with them.
What is the business benefit of combining materials efficiency and embodied carbon?
Highly materials inefficient building can also never be carbon efficient. In our view, a building needs to be designed and delivered in a material-efficient manner first, before moving to choose suppliers. This is why One Click LCA Planetary combines materials efficiency and embodied carbon.
What can One Click LCA Planetary be used for?
One Click LCA Planetary can be used to power embodied carbon and materials efficiency policies as well as individual design, construction and procurement decisions.
What data does One Click LCA Planetary include?
One Click LCA Planetary includes global generic (average) data, as well as manufacturer specific, third-party verified EPDs. New EPDs are constantly being added, and you can request manufacturers to develop them for inclusion. All data in the software undergoes One Click LCA’s rigorous data verification and qualification process that guarantees consistency and robust assessments.
One Click LCA Planetary does not include databases that are licensed for a fee. Those are available only in the paid versions of the software.
