Having as background the lasting global economical crisis, efforts towards the use of new, environmental friendly materials, design of new products and technologies that could be labeled “eco”, finding alternative, renewable, dependable energy sources, efforts that should not impede the economy of the country neither the deterioration of the environment become more numerous and more intense. Evaluating such efforts at the enterprise level is done, with more and more success, by applying the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) Method, usually in its two, more elaborated approaches: cradle-to-grave or, more recently and having an increased impact, cradle-to-cradle. The present paper illustrates an LCA methodology that generates LCA scores, aggregating impact of a given product or material upon the environment or humans, during the entire life of that product or material, from multiple environmental and health and safety points of view. The paper approaches the industrial sectors (metallurgy, chemistry, energy, transport, waste treatment) having a major impact upon the environment and analyses the structure of this impact, vs the structure of the contribution of these sectors to GDP and the dynamics of this impact, in time.
The objective of the work is to generate new, modern instruments for the objective building of new sustainable strategies at a macroeconomical level and help devising new policies that substantiate these strategies.
