“LCA of whole buildings mark a step change in our approach to environmental sustainability. eTool made it easy for us to set a benchmark in whole of life environmental impacts that is both compliant with leading international standards and also recognized under the Green Star rating tool. A clear understanding of absolute impacts at aggregate and detail level is essential for identifying hotspots and exploring the real benefits of improvement opportunities. I highly recommend integrating eTool at earliest project stages to support systems thinking and inform decisions.”

“I have been using eTool on a number of projects over the past year inclusive of a major supermarket, Green Star Projects and a sustainable housing community in Victoria. I have found it much easier to work with (compared to other programs and in-house tools) and I like the online user interface. The software was easy to pick up and the team at eTool have been very helpful during training sessions and through the certification process. I like the fact that it is a dynamic program which is continually improving and growing.”
