Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Sustainability is defined as meeting the needs of present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs. It creates a balanced condition in which human beings exist in harmony with nature ,while fulfilling their social and economic needs.

       LCA principles form a core element of efforts to asses sustainability ,which allows analyst to consider parts of a system and multiple environmental indicators  in developing effective policy.

       This analysis can be expanded to consider economic impacts by incorporating results into either a benefit- cost analysis or by incorporating data and dynamics into LCA itself.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
