An analysis is only as good as the data it references.
VitalMetrics' CEDA 5 is the most comprehensive, peer-reviewed
Environmentally-Extended Input-Output Life Cycle Assessment database available today.
Reliable Spend Analysis output is dependent upon a high quality, Environmentally-Extended Input-Output Life Cycle Assessment (EEIO-LCA) database. Expertise, quality control, transparency, updates, consistency, and support are critically important characteristics when informing any data decisions your organization makes. You are investing resources, and potentially informing initiatives, interventions, and investment decisions based on the analysis results. Already the data of choice for numerous private and public sector applications around the world - including the U.S. General Services Administration, the State of California Department of General Services, Google, Travis Perkins plc, etc. - CEDA® (Comprehensive Environmental Data Archive) is an extensively peer-reviewed suite of EEIO-LCA databases.
