Life Cycle Assessment App, eToolLCD has become one of the first in the world to comply with IMPACT LCA methodology
International software company eTool have achieved compliance for their software eToolLCD with BRE IMPACT standard. eToolLCD is a powerful web-based life cycle assessment (LCA) application for the built form that enables assessment of the entire environmental and cost impacts at any stage of a project in one model, providing a genuine “integrated design” approach.
This means that eToolLCD users are able to assess the embodied carbon, Ecopoints and other impacts of their building design using BRE’s highly regarded LCA method and data.
Flavie Lowres of BRE said “we are delighted that eTool has now become IMPACT compliant. Users have now got a new option for IMPACT calculations, which is great news for the market. All IMPACT compliant tools give the same results, which are based on BRE’s methodology and data. eTool can do LCA calculations for whole buildings”
Pat Hermon, eTool UK Business Development Director said “IMPACT Compliance means eToolLCD users can earn two credits in BREEAM New Construction UK up to 6 credits in BREEAM refurbishment and International and 15 credits in the new Home Quality Mark – we see this as a great way to promote eToolLCD into the UK and European market.”
This move will make eToolLCD one of few life cycle assessment softwares in the world that are compliant with the IMPACT LCA method. Below are just some of the companies already using eTool, either as consultants or software providers, for their LCA requirements.
