Welcome on the Base IMPACTS ® website of ADEME, the French Environment and Energy Management Agency.
The Base IMPACTS ® is the official database of the French program for environmental labeling of consumer goods. It has been built in parallel to the Product Category Rules (PCRs) of the 'ADEME-AFNOR platform'
The inventory datasets of the Base IMPACTS ® are directly caracterised in potential impact indicators following the LCA (Life Cycle Analysis) approach, through the caracterisation methods recommended by the JRC (Join Research Center of the European Commission) in the ILCD Handbook (http://lct.jrc.ec.europa.eu/assessment/pdf-directory/Recommendation-of-methods-for-LCIA-def.pdf).
The inventory datasets of the Base IMPACTS ® were either bought from partners (PE International, Cycleco, Ecoinvent, Quantis) or co-produced as a result of specific programs (Agri-BALYSE, ACYVIA, etc.).
