Life Cycle Assessment

The purpose of a life cycle assessment is to evaluate the entire life cycle of a product from the extraction and production of raw materials through energy production and material production to application, waste treatment and final disposal.

 

The findings on environmental impacts indicate your consumption of resources, allowing the potential for financial savings to be derived.

Life cycle assessments are also a valuable component of presenting your sustainability efforts transparently to the consumer and can be used in your sustainability report.
