There are no ISO standards that we can measure our software against that are specific to life cycle assessment.  There are however a number of standards that eToolLCD can be used to report against.  The user still has a responsibility to ensure their report writing (publishing the numbers from eToolLCD) and inputs into eToolLCD are robust and compliant with the standard.  The standards that eTool methodology and calculations are currently compliant with include:

  • ISO 14040  2006:  Environmental management – Life cycle assessment – Principles and framework
  • ISO 14044  2006:  Environmental management – Life cycle assessment – Requirements and guidelines
  • EN 15978  2011: Sustainability of construction works. Assessment of environmental performance of buildings. Calculation method
