5.1 Overview

This chapter addresses aspects that are related not to a single building life cycle stage but to several, and therefore represent common LCA questions. Also, these aspects typically relate both to buildings and to products. They provide provisions, rules and guidance for the goal and scope definition, the inventory analysis, the impact assessment and the interpretation steps according to ISO 14040-44. The following list describes the aspects addressed, which cover issues that typically need to be addressed when conducting an LCA study on a building product or a building.
