Good quick review of available tools to do Life Cycle Assessments: and here

I like the way Linkcycle thinks – focusing on the most strategic and biggest influencers on lifecycle impacts, rather than doing monster assessments.  They even offer a free quick review tool.

Of course, the biggest challenge of LCA is comparing apples to apples based on the best data applicable to your products and processes.


11/20/12 additional info:  Interesting review of Berkeley LMAS study comparing results of different LCA models.  It really matters what assumptions your model uses!  Paper cup rankings for 3 different models: 1, 3 and 6/6 !
