Option 1 scoring based on robustness and extent of LCA

For Option 1, BRE Global verifies the LCA tool’s score within┬áthe Mat 01 calculator based on the rigour of the life cycle assessment tool and the extent it is used on the assessment. ┬áFor this reason, as opposed to the UK New Construction schemes, the performance/scoring of building elements is┬ánot to be taken into consideration and Green Guide ratings for building elements are not┬álinked to the scoring of the Mat 01 tool and credits achieved.

Please see KBCN0237 for further details on using the calculator with verified LCA tools.
