The current eToolLCD scope is shown in the below diagram. Although broad, the omission of demolition and recycling impacts must be noted as this has potential to be significant in an unbounded LCA. eTool is working now to include demolition, disposal and recycling and as credible data becomes available this will be built into subsequent versions of eToolLCD.. The eTool database does however store an estimated percentage of recyclable materials used in the construction of the building which can be reported on separately. Please contact us for more information.
