Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
Life Cycle Assessment is the systematic analysis of the potential environmental impact of products or services throughout their entire life cycle. During a Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) study, all potential environmental impacts are being assessed over the entire life cycle of a product by examining the various phases of its life, from the phase of the extraction of raw materials to the production process of the product, its distribution to the consumer until its end use.
