We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The European Life Cycle thinking Database consists of life cycle emission and resource consumption data from front-running EU-level business associations and other sources for key materials, energy carriers, transport, and waste management (Life Cycle Inventory). The focus is on data quality, consistency, and applicability. The respective data sets are officially provided and approved by the named business association.
