An integrated data envelopment analysis and life cycle assessment method for performance measurement in green construction management
The construction industry routinely extracts vast quantities of materials and releases deleterious pollutant emissions to the biosphere. In this study, we propose an integrated data envelopment analysis (DEA) and life cycle assessment (LCA) method to measure the performance of eco-friendly building materials in green construction management. Initially, we use the LCA method and environmental impact analysis to identify alternative green flooring systems and relevant sustainability criteria. We then use factor analysis to further evaluate these criteria and choose the most significant sustainability factors. Finally, a DEA model and a new enhanced Russell model (ERM) is proposed to measure the performance of the green flooring systems with factor analysis.
