GaBi 8.0 – the next generation of Life Cycle Assessment


Leinfelden-Echterdingen, 20 July 2017 - GaBi, one of the world’s leading software solutions for Eco-Footprinting, Life Cycle Assessment and EPD preparation, has been given a new look and a complete overhaul. GaBi 8.0, newly released by sustainability specialist thinkstep, was built with user-friendliness at its core. Users will experience a new, intuitive program, with improved menu navigation, optimised control panels and simpler language. A major plus point of GaBi 8.0 is that the software is now much easier to navigate, even for people unfamiliar with the program. What's more, the interface design has been harmonised with all thinkstep software products – an added bonus for users of several thinkstep solutions.


With the new data exchange format tsx, data can be transferred between databases much more quickly, increasing work process efficiency for users. At the same time, it is much easier for various teams to collaborate on the same project.

Moreover, ILCD export is now compliant with current standards, meaning that GaBi 8.0 now supports all PEF-relevant criteria.
