A decision-analytic framework for impact assessment. Part I: LCA and decision analysis



A decision-analytic framework for impact assessment. Part I: LCA and decision analysis



International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment 6(1): 5-12



Life-cycle assessments (LCAs) are conducted to satisfy the aspiration of decision makers to consider the environment in their decision making. This paper reviews decision analysis and discusses how it can be used to structure the assessment and to integrate characterization and valuation. The decision analytic concepts of objectives (goals) and attributes (indicators of the degree to which an objective is achieved) are used to describe steps of the assessment of the entire impact chain.
