How does LCA as Code work?

The core LCA as Code workflow consists of the following stages:

  • Write: you create a LCA model by writing a textual description of it. LCA as Code is augmented with editing facilities that helps you get to the point (e.g., autocompletion, navigation by click) while ensuring correctness (e.g., unit compatibility checks).

  • Assess: you assess your model in one click to see the relative contributions of indicators that you choose.

  • Refine: you refine your model until you are satisfied with the results.

  • Execute at scale: you run your model on an external data source to generate, possibly thousands of, assessments.
