Dr. Mark Delucchi's home page at the University of California. Contains numerous reports on Delucchi's Lifecycle Emissions Model.
The Global Emission Model of Integrated Systems (GEMIS) is a computer tool permitting analysis of the environmental impacts and costs associated with energy, material and transport processes and the associated life-cycles.
Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), Argonne National Lab has developed a fuel-cycle model called GREET (Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy use in Transportation). It allows researchers and analysts to evaluate various vehicle and fuel combinations on a full fuel-cycle basis.
ISO has a family of standards that deal with environmental management. Several of the standards address life cycle assessment. The introduction to the ISO LCA standards can be found using this link.
The mission of the SETAC LCA Advisory Group is to advance the science, practice, and application of LCAs to reduce the resource consumption and environmental burdens associated with products, packaging, processes, or activities.
In 2001, the American Center for Life Cycle Assessment was formed under the auspices of the Institute for Environmental Research and Education. The mission of ACLCA is to build capacity and knowledge of LCA.
A United Nations Environment program to develop and disseminate practical tools for evaluating the opportunities, risks, and trade-offs associated with products and services over their entire life cycle to achieve sustainable development.
The US EPA E3 Sustainability Tools list. The site's purpose is to promote the use of LCA and other tools to make more informed decisions through a better understanding of the human health and environmental impacts of products, processes, and activities.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been established by WMO and UNEP to assess scientific, technical and socio- economic information relevant for the understanding of climate change, its potential impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation.
The International Energy Agency has been mandated by its Member countries to provide analytical work on the energy dimension of climate change and the implications of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its Kyoto Protocol on the energy sector. The IEA also undertakes work on options for the future evolution of the international climate change mitigation regime.
The website of the secretariat of the Convention provides organizational support and technical information for the Parties to the Convention and observers participating in the intergovernmental negotiations and related activities to combat climate change.
Independent, transparent registry listings to publicly recognize organizations that have committed to measure and manage their carbon management results.
Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) provides many resources as a part of its objective of helping Canadians benefit from the secure and sustainable production and use of Canada’s energy resources. These resources include program and funding information, energy offices and labs, energy publications, software tools, price information, and this link for statistics and analysis.
