Quick-start LCA models

It can be quite laborious to get started in LCA. Modelling requires you to make a lot of choices about secondary data, model completeness, allocation, end-of-life, and many other topics. Building your first model can take a lot of time. To ease the learning curve, we provide the possibility to buy and import your first model, to give you a quick start in LCA. There are two options available for purchase:

  • Standard. We and our partners have a library of readily available models for a variety of products. These models can be adapted to your situation.
  • Custom-built. If no models are available that fit your specific situation, we can build you a custom first model.

Why choose Quick-start LCA models?

Easier Learning Curve

If you have us or one of our partners build your model, you benefit from the experience and knowledge of seasoned LCA experts. This will get you a quick start in working with LCA. Because you don’t have to start from scratch, you can start working on calculating, interpreting and using results right away.

The model is adaptable, so you can use and re-use it in an efficient way. And if you need additional support, you have direct access to the experts who created your model. Models are provided by partners from the SimaPro Partner Network.

Saves time and money

Setting up a model for the first time can take weeks or even months if you’re unexperienced. It’s also difficult to know when and if you got it right. Unfortunately, the knowledge and experience you need to do that simply takes time to acquire. By using a model that was already available, you can save a lot of time and money. The models are equipped with parameters to make it easy to do modifications yourself without having to dig too deeply into the model. We offer several options:

  • Library model
  • Custom model

High Quality

The models are developed by PRé and its partners. All partners in the SimaPro Partner Network are recognised as leading experts. They all specialise in certain sectors or topics.

With this wide range of expertise, we can offer you models of the highest quality and for a variety of products. This helps you to make sure that you can deliver sustainability metrics that create value for your business.
