GaBi LCA Databases

The most reliable LCA data for the best results

Over the last 20 years we have developed the largest internally consistent LCA databases available on the market. GaBi Databases provide a reliable basis for strategic decision-making in the fast-changing business environment.

Real-world data

We offer over 10,000 Life Cycle Inventory datasets based on primary data collection during our global work with companies, associations and public bodies. These datasets have been developed from an underlying database of about 30,000 unit process data sets – by far the largest LCI data industry coverage worldwide. And, for the first time, regionalized water and land use data are included throughout the GaBi databases and can be used with your own regionalized data. Compliance and standardization concerning ISO, EN, ILCD, PEF/OEF has been further advanced, and the dataset-internal documentation is more detailed than ever. GaBi Databases span most industries including:

  • Agriculture
  • Building & construction
  • Chemicals & materials
  • Consumer goods
  • Education
  • Electronics & ICT
  • Energy & utilities
  • Food & beverage
  • Healthcare & life sciences
  • Industrial products
  • Metals & mining
  • Plastics
  • Retail
  • Service sector
  • Textiles

    Always up-to-date

    An LCA is only as valid as its data. In our global economy, new products, processes, raw material options and manufacturing methods are routinely introduced. That is why thinkstep has a unique annual upgrade programme: every year, we fully refresh all contents in the GaBi Databases, providing you with the most current Life Cycle Inventory data and impact methodologies.

More than 60 life cycle experts from thinkstep from over 20 countries contribute to the development of GaBi Databases.
