Life cycle assessment for buildings in an international context
Life cycle impacts from buildings are responsible for a high share of the climate impact globally. In recent years, it is increasingly acknowledged that climate impacts associated with the construction stage of buildings is responsible for a high share of total impacts. In this project international collaboration and harmonization aim to speed up mitigation measures for buildings through the application of LCA in policy and practice.
