    A new, green, holistic and EU-harmonised eco-labelling methodology integrating a Life Cycle Engineering (LCE) approach: environmental indicators along with the economic, technical and social aspects, for the assessment of future and existing road infrastructures, as well as their construction materials such as asphalt mixtures and cement-based materials.

    This methodology, together with a guide for road eco-labelling and a multi-criteria software tool to be developed, will define eco-labels and provide recommendations to improve the label achieved, supporting and motivating relevant stakeholders and industry to include greener, more cost-effective and safer technologies in their road construction, maintenance and renewal projects.
