They will concern both LCA and other environmental sustainability assessment tools capable of intercepting specific aspects not adequately represented by this technique.

The scope of the analysis will be three universities in Milan: Politecnico, Statale and Bicocca.
The activity will be developed within the BEviMI Rif. 2020-2469 CUP D45F21000180007 project
