Life Cycle Impact: Draft National Standard for Sustainable Products, Services, and Systems (LEO-SC-002)
When we buy products or services, we also buy the environmental impact associated with their complete lifetime— their life cycle impact. The standard for Sustainable Products, Services, and Systems will give producers of goods and services environmental performance data based on a full life-cycle impact assessment. This will help producers make well-informed decisions when improving the environmental performance of energy sources, technologies, material, and surrounding environments. Leonardo Academy is developing this national standard for Type III Life-Cycle Impact Profile Declarations for Products, Services, and Systems (LEO-SCS-002), under the rules of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
