The Land Use Change Improved (LUCI)-LCA method presents advances

for Life Cycle Assessment that integrate spatially explicit modelling of land change and ecosystem services. LUCI-LCA applies globally available, spatial data and newly accessible tools for ecosystem services to predictive modelling of large-scale changes in agricultural systems through LCA. It substitutes key elements of life cycle inventory in the agricultural stage of an attributional LCA with outputs from predictive land-change modelling (LCM) and spatially explicit ecosystem services modelling using the InVEST software suite.
