Source of the BP LCI

BPIC members, in association with the Department of Industry Innovation and Scientific Research, funded the development of the BP LCI. The project commenced in 2008 with the database released to the public in 2011.

BPIC will maintain the database and review the methodology to ensure that it remains current and reflects changes in Australian manufacturing over time. BPIC will also work to expand the database over time to make it available for use by an ever-expanding group of products and industries.

The development of the BP LCI was conducted in collaboration with ALCAS and BRANZ to ensure it is consistent with the AusLCI methodology and validated by independent LCA authorities.
