Project Details


The objective of the GLAM project is to run a global process aiming at global guidance and consensus building on a limited number of environmental life cycle impact category indicators developed within a consistent framework, and to identify the related research agenda. The deliverable would be a global guidance publication with a supporting web system that includes the limited number of 6 to 10 life cycle assessment (LCA) based environmental impact category indicators and the characterization factors (for various regions). It may also include guidance on how to best establish a particular regional impact category indicator in case global consensus on characterization factors cannot be achieved or makes no sense.
