 Description

The use of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is gaining greater recognition in sustainability assessment. eTool is hosting a free webinar to present and discuss the recent changes in Materials Life Cycle credit and how to maximise design value using LCA methodology. An LCA credit is embedded as a core credit in the Green Star rating tools Design and As Built v1.2, Interiors v1.2 and Communities v1.1.
In early July 2017, Green Star released the 1.2 version for Design and As Built and Interiors rating tools and the Materials Life Cycle Impacts credit was further improved, as follows:
Points allocation have been adjusted with operational energy reductions capped.
Further Additional Reporting initiatives were added with extra points available.
Additional guidance throughout to improve clarity and other updates.
eTool have completed and peer reviewed over 45 LCAs for Green Star projects and we have a great group of eToolLCD users that are constantly providing feedback to improve the way we quantify and improve project performance using Life Cycle Design. Come and join us for this conversation by clicking on the register button below.
