LCA Using Big Data

Including site-specific biodiversity impacts in LCA been a longstanding challenge for LCA practitioners due to data constraints. However, over the course of time, a wealth of data has been made publicly available and freely accessible. This poster presents some of the publicly available “big data” sources and methodology to assess two impact categories relevant to biodiversity impacts- Terrestrial disturbance and Threatened species habitat disturbance, with the help of three case studies.
