Helsinki, London, Paris — One Click LCA, a leading global plat­form for redu­cing green­house gas emis­si­ons in the cons­truc­tion and manu­fac­tu­ring indus­tries, recei­ves €40 million from finan­cial inves­tors PSG Equity (“PSG”) and Infra­Via Capi­tal Part­ners (“Infra­Via”) to acce­le­rate growth. PSG is a leading growth equity inves­tor that works with soft­ware and tech­no­logy compa­nies to drive their inter­na­tio­nal growth. Infra­Via is a leading inde­pen­dent Euro­pean private equity firm in the infra­struc­ture, tech­no­logy, criti­cal metals and real estate sectors.

One Click LCA’s vision is to pave the way to a CO2-neutral future with a powerful global Life-Cycle Assess­ment (LCA), Envi­ron­men­tal Product Decla­ra­tion (EPD) and other sustaina­bi­lity solu­ti­ons. The company analy­zes the entire cons­truc­tion value chain — from real estate port­fo­lios to cons­truc­tion compa­nies — and uses scien­ti­fic methods to measure, report and reduce climate-dama­­ging CO2 emis­si­ons and to calcu­late other sustaina­bi­lity crite­ria for the entire cons­truc­tion and real estate sector.

The One Click LCA plat­form supports thou­sands of custo­mers in over 150 count­ries, inclu­ding well-known compa­nies such as Siemens, Schind­ler, Skanska, AECOM, WSP, Foster+Partners, Lafar­ge­Hol­cim, Saint Gobain and CSD Inge­nieure, in achie­ving their envi­ron­men­tal goals. The plat­form includes LCA tools that are compli­ant with over 70 stan­dards and certi­fi­ca­ti­ons inclu­ding LEED, BREEAM, GRESB and many natio­nal regu­la­ti­ons and toge­ther form a unique global LCA database.

The plat­form enables CO2 analy­sis across the entire value chain, inclu­ding LCA and sustaina­bi­lity assess­ment for buil­dings, infra­struc­ture and the produc­tion of buil­ding mate­ri­als, inclu­ding early-stage analy­sis, test­ing of diffe­rent product designs, bench­mar­king and sugges­ti­ons for redu­cing CO2 emis­si­ons. In addi­tion, manu­fac­tu­r­ers can use the plat­form to create and publish digi­tal envi­ron­men­tal product decla­ra­ti­ons for their products and buil­ding mate­ri­als. The services inte­grate seam­lessly with over 15 of the most widely used Buil­ding Infor­ma­tion Mode­ling (BIM) soft­ware tools, inclu­ding Auto­desk Revit®, Tekla Struc­tures® and Bent­ley iTwin®.

With the help of the two inves­tors and the funds provi­ded, One Click LCA will invest even more in rese­arch and deve­lo­p­ment and drive orga­nic and inor­ga­nic growth with the aim of beco­ming the leading global sustaina­bi­lity plat­form for all stake­hol­ders in the areas of green­house gas reduc­tion, biodi­ver­sity, circu­lar economy and beyond.

“With the global buil­ding stock expec­ted to double in the next forty years, gene­ra­ting 230 giga­tons of CO2 emis­si­ons, we need to scale up measu­res to reduce green­house gas emis­si­ons in cons­truc­tion and manu­fac­tu­ring,” says Panu Pasa­nen, foun­der and CEO of One Click LCA. “We are convin­ced that our part­ner­ship with PSG and Infra­Via will usher in a new phase of growth and that toge­ther we are getting ever closer to our goal of support­ing one million users with life cycle analy­sis, envi­ron­men­tal product decla­ra­ti­ons and other sustaina­bi­lity software.”

“We look forward to working with Panu Pasa­nen and the One Click LCA team to support the company’s inter­na­tio­nal growth and deve­lop inno­va­tive products for the indus­try,” says Dany Rammal, Mana­ging Direc­tor, Head of Europe at PSG (photo © PSG). “Our opera­tio­nal exper­tise and track record of growing leading inter­na­tio­nal soft­ware provi­ders will enable us to streng­then and conso­li­date One Click LCA’s posi­tion as a leading force in the decar­bo­niza­tion of the global cons­truc­tion industry.”

Alban Wyniecki, Part­ner at Infra­Via, adds: “The world is commit­ted to carbon neutra­lity and this offers huge oppor­tu­ni­ties for One Click LCA. Thanks to its stra­tegy of flag­ship invest­ments in the infra­struc­ture sector, Infra­Via has been a major player in the infra­struc­ture and cons­truc­tion indus­try for 15 years. We are very much looking forward to support­ing Panu Pasa­nen and One Click LCA in brin­ging sustaina­bi­lity to our ecosys­tem and the cons­truc­tion manu­fac­tu­ring indus­try more broadly.”
