BRANZ has been undertaking important research into development of a New Zealand Whole Building Whole of Life Framework with the aim of providing more of a level playing field to environmental assessment of buildings, and the contribution made by products, based on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).
Part of the research has involved defining a proposed reporting basis for the framework, using LCA-based indicators. This work has been informated by a review of international standards and best practice methodologies and a workhsop with interested industry representatives held in September 2013. The report that has resulted from this work is now available for consultation here.
BRANZ welcomes any comments and would be grateful for any feedback by email to firstname.lastname@example.org to arrive before 5PM on 28th March 2014.
