Our database supports a broad and diverse range of sustainability assessments. We offer yearly and perpetual licenses for individuals, researchers, tool providers, and enterprises.

 

 

Our data can be accessed through the ecoQuery online portal. We encourage new users to explore the meta-information we provide on ecoQuery. The cumulative cradle-to-gate emissions, including the upstream supply chain and downstream waste treatment processes, can only be accessed by licensees.

 

Perpetual single-user licenses allow lifetime access to the latest version of the database available at the time of purchase.

Yearly maintenance includes access to future database versions released after the initial purchase.

 

To integrate the ecoinvent database into an existing LCA software, get in touch with one of our partners.
