Life cycle assessments (LCA) are an essential tool to explore the environmental impacts associated with a product or service over the course of the entire life cycle. For accurate modelling, data on all relevant potential environmental impacts should be included in an LCA. To consider land in the context of an LCA, the quality of the land used to supply a product or service is a key factor. The br...read more
