Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a tool that offers decisional support to designers about sustainability of projects. LCA has been recently improved with the implementation of site-dependent factors, spatially resolved at the level of countries. The uncertainty in assessment due to spatial variation of effects is thus reduced. A further improvement may be achieved, in the future, by development of characterization factors spatially resolved at level of regions. This may give more precise information about impact of local products.
