eTool , the provider of Life Cycle Assessment software eTool LCD has helped leading ESD consultant Umow Lai achieve a 6 star outcome for their project through the Green Star LCA Innovation Challenge.

One of the earliest projects to have successfully utilised the Green Star Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) Innovation Credits, The University of Melbourne Faculty of Architecture Building and Planning redevelopment recently obtained a challenging 6 Star Green Star Rating.

Using eTool’s LCD software, Umow Lai obtained five innovation points that substantially contributed towards the achievement of such an impressive Green Star rating. An EN 15978 compliant LCA report was also produced as part of the stringent Green Star requirements for the LCA Innovation Credit.

Richard Stokes from Umow Lai said that using eTool LCD simplified the otherwise very complex process while also adding valuable information to the project.

eTool Co-founder and Business Development Director Alex Bruce commented that eTool LCD’s ability to provide a complete picture of a design’s environmental impacts and enable project teams to make quantifiable improvements, is ensuring the software remains the best tool of choice for LCA. eTool is also EN15978-compliant.
