Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is covered by ISO 14040 and 14044; it is a method of assessing the environmental impacts of a product or service. LCCA (Life Cycle Cost Assessment) is covered by ISO 15686 – 5 and gives guidelines for performing life cycle cost analysis of buildings and constructed assets.
eToolLCD has been developed to meet LCA standards, and although is a very useful tool for life cycle cost assessments, the standard reports generated by eToolLCD don’t necessarily meet ISO 15686 – 5 (LCCA).  Neither of these standards are particularly well known and we have been providing both services to clients in the past to their satisfaction.
