The continuous price increase of energy raw material, as well as the growing requirements regarding the emission and energy consumption of buildings, force us to look for new solutions, starting from obtaining raw materials, producing (constructing), exploitation and consequently managing energy and rawmaterials in accordancewith the assumptions of a circular and sustainable economy development. The goal of the study was a detailed analysis of the energy and environmental loads in the life cycle of an existing commercial building. This scientific analytical procedure was performed using the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) method. The results of the analysis show the dominant influence of the exploitation phase on the environment. Particularly in this area further measures should be taken to improve the energy efficiency and consequently the emissivity of buildings.
