Life cycle assessment is the language of sustainability.

LCA enables industry, government, and consumers to evaluate the entire impact of production. It allows leaders to make informed decisions and find competitive advantage in often overlooked portions of the value chain.

CarbonGraph understands the essential role which LCA will play in enabling 'triple-bottom-line' thinking and navigation of global sustainability challenges.

What is a product
life cycle assessment?

Life cycle assessment (LCA) is a systematic and comprehensive analysis of the environmental impacts associated with a product throughout its entire life cycle. A life cycle typically includes several stages:

At each stage impacts are quantified, such as energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, water usage, and the release of pollutants. Product LCAs are increasingly used by businesses to make informed decisions about procurement, product design, manufacturing, and logistics.
