Before embarking on a potentially time-consuming and expensive LCA, get clear on the following: What question s are you trying to answer? What problem s are you trying to solve? What decision s do you need help with? Being explicit about this up front is a crucial prerequisite to choosing the right tools for the task. Most studies build off an international standard approach for LCAs. One to do it, and one to change it when you get more data. Company A spends tens of thousands of dollars to generate its own primary data, while Company B uses publicly available data based on sector averages.
Company A inadvertently omits a few seemingly insignificant manufacturing-related inputs from the study, but Company B meticulously includes every single one. Company A assumes that consumers will use the product about 8 hours a week for 32 weeks, while Company B assumes 7 hours a day for 40 weeks. Company A weights impacts on local watersheds 33 percent more than Company B. In this way, LCA is as much an art as it is a science. And as you read this, you can be sure that countless PhDs, consultants, and developers are hard at work picking apart existing tools and creating new ones.
