LCA Food database update

Agri-footprint 3.0 available in SimaPro and openLCA

In recent years we have observed a growing interest in the availability of consistent agri-food data, probably because the food system makes a major contribution to various environmental problems. In 2009 Blonk Consultants started developing the Agri-footprint® LCA Food database to improve the transparency of information and facilitate a faster transition to sustainable food supply chains. Agri-footprint® offers footprint and LCA experts reliable data for use in environmental assessments. We are continually improving the Agri-footprint tool and adding data. From this summer Agri-footprint® 3.0 is available in openLCA and SimaPro.

LCA software: SimaPro & openLCA

We are delighted to announce that Agri-footprint® 3.0 is available in SimaPro as well as openLCA (expected: August 2017). This means that more experts will be able to access the valuable data in Agri-footprint® to use in their environmental assessments. Agri-footprint® has now become the prime international LCA Food database and is widely acknowledged and valued by the food industry, LCA experts, the scientific community and governments.

Access to Agri-footprint® - LCA database

Agri-footprint 3.0 is beschikbaar in openLCA en SimaPro.
