Dear users,

Please find below the latest news.


March 2023

Base IMPACTS® will close permanently on 17 April 2023. After this date, all Base IMPACTS® data and the tool Bilan Produit® will only be accessible via Base Empreinte®.

  • From 22 February to 17 April, Base IMPACTS® data is accessible on the Base IMPACTS® website AND on the Base Empreinte® website. Bilan Produit® is only accessible via the Base IMPACTS® website.
  • After 17 April, the Base IMPACTS® data and the tool Bilan Produit® will only be accessible via the Base Empreinte® website.

Please note :

  • that the user accounts of the Base Empreinte® and Base IMPACTS® websites are dissociated
  • that when the tool Bilan Produit® will be linked with the Base Empreinte® website, the ase IMPACTS® website will be definitively closed
  • /!\ that no migration of user data from Base IMPACTS® to Base Empreinte® will be carried out. This includes: your Base IMPACTS® user account, your Base IMPACTS® tickets and your modeling done in the tool Bilan Produit® on Base IMPACTS®. We invite you to retrieve the data you wish to keep before 17 April.
  • /!\ that there will be no compatibility between the two versions of the Bilan Produit® tool,
     i.e. you will not be able to reload a modeling created in Base IMPACTS®, in the Bilan Produit® tool linked with Base Empreinte®.

See you soon on Base Empreinte®!


January 2023

/!\ The Base IMPACTS® database will be replaced soon by the Base Empreinte® database.

All life cycle inventory datasets currently in the Base IMPACTS® database will then be accessible in the Base Empreinte® database.

Your account data will not be transferred to Base Empreinte®. This includes: your user account, your tickets and your Bilan Produit® models.

We therefore invite you to connect to your Base IMPACTS® account before 10 February, in order to recover the data you would like to keep. After this date, they will no longer be accessible.

When the Base Empreinte® site will be launched, you will be able to create a new account to access Base IMPACTS® and Bilan Produit® models.

Thank you for your understanding

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.
