To develop better analytical tools to examine the life-cycle impacts of goods, services, and activities, LC-IMPACT researchers used case studies to compare new assessment tools being developed with existing tools. The case studies used the new tools to analyze the production methods for fish, fresh tomatoes, and margarine. The researchers also studied processes used in paper production and printing, as well as auto manufacturing.
Scientists from IIASA’s Ecosystems Services & Management Program developed better ways of characterizing the effects of forest, cropland, and livestock management practices.
