The Federal LCA Commons is an unfunded collaboration among Federal agencies that are involved with life cycle assessment on some level. The ultimate objective of this concept is to bring together data developed through the specific missions of various agencies to assemble components of a background data set for applicable sectors of the U.S. economy.
Initially, the Federal Commons will be a data catalog and archive built on the DKAN platform. This development has not yet begun. In the meantime, the Federal Commons is simply a web page with links to our Federal partners sites.
