The Canadian forest sector is well integrated between industries (e.g., lumber, composite panels) and has overlapping supply chains. This poses challenges for both attributional and consequential LCA, because many products rely on joint upstream processes and consistent allocation factors are required to appropriately represent the total potential impact of forest activities and their allocation. This sub-project will leverage the most recent physical and economic data and models to provide the LCA community with the tools to address allocation and sectoral changes in a consistent manner.
