openLCA Supporters

Since the beginning, the openLCA project received support from various sources – we wish to express our gratitude to all our supporters and sponsors.

There are many reasons for becoming a sponsor and supporter – be it that you miss certain features in openLCA and would like to have them implemented, be it that you “only” want to support the world’s only broadly used open source LCA software… evidently, we would be happy to receive a note if you are interested in becoming a sponsor as well – we will then come back to you and discuss details. Thank you!
