In developing a sustainable society, it requires sound ecological design and pollution prevention to minimize the environmental burdens. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a systematic approach for considering the environmental implications of a process or product during its completelife cycle. In this paper, Environmental Life Cycle Assessment Using Input-Output Techniques is used to make a preliminary assessment of CO2 emission from housing industry in Malaysia. This study uses data from National Census and National Balance of Energy (PTM, 2000) to compute,O2 emission by fuel type in direct and indirect energy consumption.
