Answer
The point is the total environmental load expressed as a single score (the definition is different for the various impact assessment methods that use single scoring). In that score, characterization, damage assessment, normalization and weighting are combined. How the single score is calculated is explained in detail in the documentation available on http://www.lcia-recipe.net.
