The need for New Zealand specific Inventory datasets has been recognised by LCA researchers and practitioners in New Zealand. The Life Cycle Association of New Zealand (LCANZ) published a report in May 2011 in which it recommended use of the ILCD dataset format for such datasets.
A project was subsequently undertaken by the New Zealand Life Cycle Management Centre to develop greenhouse gas inventory datasets for five activities in New Zealand: electricity generation, fertilisers, pesticides, coolstore operations and use of diesel in agricultural operations. This project was funded by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, and Zespri International. On this site you can access copies of the final reports and the datasets themselves that were produced during this project. See the list on the right for access to these datasets and their accompanying reports
It should be noted that:
For those who are interested, a large number of other ILCD datasets are available free of charge from the European Reference Life Cycle Database (ELCD) project by clicking here.
