The life-cycle of a product comprises of consecutive and interlinked phases from raw material acquisition or generation to product end-of-life and disposal. LCA for a product is the compilation and evaluation of inputs, outputs and their potential environmental impacts throughout its life-cycle. This systematic approach will ensure accurate assignment of a potential environmental burden to the appropriate life-cycle phase or individual process (ISO14040, 2006). The ISO 14040 LCA has the following four phases: goal and scope definition, inventory analysis, impact assessment, and interpretation.

EPDs from different operators aren’t comparable yet. g. carbon dioxide emissions differ between the current EPD-systems in Europe and USA, which can be misleading when comparing EPDs for products and processes. However this is already addressed within the framework of the EPD/PCR and also within the ongoing work in the EU-project (Eco-Platform, 2016).
