Abstract: Both quantification and communication of environmental impacts can create the foundation for improved sustainable production and decision-making. Without widespread information about sitespecific environmental impacts, stakeholders cannot make a well-informed decision based on the local system boundaries. With organization-wide digital platforms, different aspects of production and management can be integrated and customized based on the organization's needs. This paper aims to give an overview of the development of three different process and environmental platforms, their purposes, system structure, system constraints and the applied framework. These respective platforms are being developed separately for the Swedish aggregates industry, the European aggregates industry and the European critical raw materials sector. The initial demonstrator can integrate site-specific information with a simulation-based allocation of resources and generate Life-Cycle Assessment, and Environmental Product Declaration reports harmonized with the EN 15804 standard and the associated Product Category Rules.
