Life-Cycle-Assessment (LCA) – Databases and Tools

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) tools are used to evaluate the environmental impact of a product, process, or service throughout its entire life cycle. Donau Soja publishes LCA datasets on the environmental impact of Donau Soja / Europe Soya certified soya beans in LCA databases and calculation tools, also in the currently very relevant SBTi FLAG format. The data includes values on the carbon footprint as well as data on additional environmental impact categories, such as land use and water use.

The data can be used in different LCA tools in order to calculate the impact on the environment through the use of Donau Soja / Europe Soya certified soya beans in comparison to conventional soya beans.


The environmental impact data of Donau Soja / Europe Soya certified soya beans are publicly and freely available as a so-called “branded dataset” via Blonk Consultant’s Agri-footprint database and the GFLI database. The datasets provide insights into the environmental performance of Donau Soja / Europe Soya soya beans at country level and are also available in SBTi-FLAG compliant format.

Companies that are interested in conducting Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) or assessing their Corporate Carbon Footprint can use the Donau Soja / Europe Soya datasets for certified soya beans.
