Urban systems have become one of the most crucial challenges for the EU energy strategy. In this, initiatives that focus on Smart Environment are pivotal for the development of the EU energy planning and implementing. In this contribute we discuss some of the major issues that need to be addressed when assessing the sustainability of Smart Cities. After presenting an overview of the best indicators and indexes developed for drafting parameters/recommendation characterizing the Smart Environment dimension of a urban system, we focus on the potentiality of LCA in this area proposing a combined approach between dynamic LCA and the results of LCA in historical series for the generation of reliable index of sustainability for Cities.
