Raw materials have to be extracted, the product has to be manufactured, distributed and packaged. Ultimately it must be disposed. Furthermore, environmental impacts often occur during the use of products because the product consumes energy or material. If we wish to assess a product’s environmental damage, all its life cycle phases must therefore be studied. To date, a designer, wishing to use Life Cycle Assessments (LCA). The Eco-indicator project has resolved these problems as follows: 1. The LCA method has been expanded to include a weighting method.
