This research studied ways in which leaders leverage Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) data, specifically as it relates to the North American residential window industry. Multiple segment groups ranging from NGOs to manufacturers were interviewed to ensure thorough cross sections of experts were polled. Such comprehensive sampling lends credence to the final recommendations.
The results revealed reoccurring themes which identify the most common uses of LCA data. Internal and external benefits range from material selection, environmental benchmarking and communications to global market access and policy development, all of which ultimately improve transparency and profitability while reducing environmental impacts
