Life Cycle Assessment is the Language of Sustainability

LCA allows you to evaluate the entire impact of production, make informed decisions, and find competitive advantage in often overlooked portions of the value chain.

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. Product LCAs are increasingly used by businesses to make informed decisions about procurement, product design, manufacturing, and logistics. A complete product life cycle includes the following stages.

This stage involves the extraction or harvesting of the resources required to manufacture the product, such as mining for metals or cutting down trees for lumber.

The environmental impacts of activities are quantified and attributed to the product as it moves through each stage. Impacts are exchanges of material to and from the environment, for example the emissions of greenhouse gases and other waste materials, or the usage of water from a natural source.
