HOME > TOPICS > LCI DATABASE
An objective method of assessing environmental impact by calculating
     the resources input (energy and material) and output (waste and pollutant)
     throughout the entire product life-cycle (raw material extraction-production-
     delivery-use-disposal) and by qualitative analysis of its potential impact on
     the environment.
- Quantifying the input and output throughout the entire life-cycle of a given system
- The result of the quantification of input and output throughout the entire life- cycle
  of a given system
- Development of eco-products
- Policy decision tool for strategic implementation
- Establishing public policy
- Communication tool for green marketing
- Legal compliance
KNCPC is constructing an LCI database for Korean industries with the support of Ministry of Commerce Industry and Energy. The database is based on the request from industries through series of surveys and it is accessible through KNCPC website
