The integration of Whole Life Costing (WLC) and Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA) presents a powerful route to improving the sustainability of the construction industry. Combining economic and environmental assessment tools to obtain 'best value' solutions in both financial and environmental terms has the potential to make a significant contribution to achieving sustainable building design. This Digest describes the issues relating to the use of the two tools and goes on to provide examples from a number of recent projects. 8 pages.
