LCA of James Hardie External Cladding Range

James Hardie required rigorous environmental credentials and benchmarking for product marketing and innovation.

Edge Environment was commissioned to conduct a cradle to grave life cycle assessment (LCA) study of the villaboard and external cladding product range and to benchmark against competing wall systems of brick, concrete, plasterboard, etc.

Edge Environment worked closely with James Hardie to identify the company’s product life cycle environmental hotspots, strengths and weaknesses against competing products, and to develop rigorous scientific evidence for marketing and educational material.
