Milan, Italy, July 2023 – Harpaceas, an Italian company known as the driving force for the digital transformation of the construction world, and One Click LCA, a renowned provider of life cycle assessment software for the construction industry, are excited to announce their partnership aimed at advancing sustainable building practices and driving environmental impact reduction.


Sustainable building starts with informed design choices



The partnership between Harpaceas and One Click LCA makes it easier to design and construct low-carbon buildings and infrastructure. The calculation of embodied carbon – the amount of carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere from the creation and maintenance of all the materials that make up a building – is a relatively new concept. Throughout the construction industry, there is a growing demand to manage a building’s carbon performance. Governments in many European countries, including Italy, have begun to require embodied carbon declarations, placing limits on emission values.

“One Click LCA is an important ally in responding to market demands for greater environmental sustainability for buildings and infrastructure. This partnership testifies to our commitment to greater environmental sustainability for buildings and infrastructures by including a market-leading Life Cycle Assessment software in our portfolio to respond to the ever-increasing demand for environmental sustainability in the building and infrastructure sector.” 

- Luca Ferrari, Co-Founder & CEO of Harpaceas

One Click LCA’s mission is to power the makers of a zero-carbon future with its powerful, global life-cycle assessment (LCA), environmental product declaration (EPD), and sustainability solutions. The company connects the full construction value chain, from property portfolio owners to manufacturers, applying a scientific approach to measuring, reporting, and reducing carbon — along with the calculation of other sustainability metrics for projects and products in the built environment.

The decarbonization platform supports thousands of customers in +150 countries, including blue-chip enterprises such as Skanska, AECOM, WSP, Foster+Partners, LafargeHolcim and Saint Gobain. The decarbonization platform includes LCA tools in compliance with +70 standards and certifications, including LEED, BREEAM, GRESB and other national regulations, and includes a unique global LCA database.

“This collaboration enables Italian designers, builders, contractors and other stakeholders to systematically and effectively decarbonise their projects. Life cycle carbon assessment data is essential for defining cost-optimal solutions and achieving regulatory and certification compliance. We are very happy to collaborate with Harpaceas and increase decarbonisation with our tools”.
- Panu Pasanen, CEO, One Click LCA
