dc.description.abstract Using a life cycle Assessment, impacts of a product can be described in technical terns by assessing and quantifying inputs and outputs during the various stages of a product’s life cycle. Techniques such as Environmental cost Accounting (ECA) and Social Auditing (SA) create opportunities to describe impacts of products in social and economic terms.
