Usage tips

Do not hesitate to consult the sectoral documentation available on the Base IMPACTS website.
This allows you to quickly obtain a synthetic vision of :

  • (i) all available datasets by sector,
  • (ii) the main methodological choices taken into account when developing the datasets.

It also allows you to better understand the different types of datasets available in the database (LCI, partially aggregated LCI...) and to use/combine them correctly.
