LCA (life cycle analysis) is a method of analysing the environmental impact of products and services that considers their full life cycle. A key strength of LCA is that it studies whole product systems and thus enables business to avoid mitigating one environmental impact at the expense of aggravating another.

A carbon footprint is the total effect a product or a service have on the emissions of climate gases, of which carbon dioxide is the most important one. To calculate a carbon footprint, you need to make a life cycle analysis of the product.
