ALCAS is a major partner in the development of the Australian National Life Cycle Inventory Database Initiative (AusLCI).
This will provide a national, publicly-accessible database with easy access to authoritative, comprehensive and transparent environmental information on a wide range of Australian products and services over their entire life cycle.
It will be an invaluable tool for those involved in LCA, as it will also define and develop consistent guidelines, principles and methodologies for the collection of LCI data, along with protocols for LCA processes for different sectors.
The initiative will deliver substantial benefits to manufacturers and retailers, who may be able use it to demonstrate product credentials and increase sales, provide enhanced disclosure to consumers and obtain market advantage for individual products over competitors.
The project will bring together stakeholders from industry, government and academia to develop a methodology to standardise the interpretation of ISO 14040 in Australia.
All Australian industry sectors will be encouraged to participate in the AusLCI process to develop a single repository for generic Australian LCI data. It will capture basic energy, water and material sources using a methodology that is accepted by major national industries, government and NGO stakeholders.
