Life Cycle Assessment

Waste & Recycling Life cycle assessment (LCA) is an internationally accepted tool for assessing the environmental impacts associated with a product, process or service throughout its life cycle, from the growing of the raw material, harvesting or extraction through to processing, transport, use, maintenance, reuse, recycling or disposal. For each of these stages, the impact is measured in terms of the resources used and environmental impacts caused.

LCA can help a business identify the most effective improvement than can be made in terms of environmental impacts and use of resources. LCA can also be a powerful tool for consumers to compare the environmental credentials of similar products and services.

The timber industry has contributed to the development of a number of LCAs and is contributing to the development of a database by the CSIRO of information on timber of wood products as well as the development of full life cycle assessment of building products
