How GFLI data is generated

The GFLI database is comprised of LCA data from various sources, which are contributed by so-called ‘data providers’. Data providers may be research institutes, Universities, a consortium of companies and/or other entities, who are interested in starting, (re)modelling, or have available data for one or more ingredients averaged for a sectoral or regional representative product.

The focus of a “data-in” project can be:
– First development of LCI datasets not yet available in the GFLI database
– Updating of existing LCI datasets for an improved representativeness (i.e. newer data, different technologies and/or inputs).
– Improvement or updating of modelling to extend the current method of evaluating environmental impacts such as additional impact indicators or new methods of measuring emissions.

Read the procedures document, find relevant partners or connect with the GFLI secretariat to see if there are any data-in projects starting you could participate in.
