This RIRDC report proposes a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology for application in Australian rural industries. A standardised LCA methodology will improve the consistency of LCA reporting and greatly increase the value of results by enhancing their comparability. It is targeted at Australian rural primary industries and associated stakeholders.

Life Cycle Assessment is a method to analyse resource uses and emissions across the life cycle of a product. It can systematically identify key areas to improve environmental and economic performance and can be applied to agricultural systems.
