[Position paper] Dynamic life cycle assessment explained
A “simplified” dynamic approach was proposed under the 2020 French environmental regulation (RE2020). This shift in methodology opens the debate on the shortcomings of static LCA that can be overcome through a dynamic approach, the operational feasibility of such an approach and whether or not it fits with the carbon neutrality target for new buildings by 2050. To stimulate this discussion, researchers from the lab recherche environnement VINCI ParisTech have drafted the following summary on state-of-the-art research in the field of the dynamic LCA of buildings and existing assessment tools.
