Life Cycle Assessment

Bolloré Thin Papers is the first thin paper manufacturer to use a Life Cycle Assessment in 2008, on Primapage 45g, and to provide information that allows us to manage our processes towards a better environment.

A Life Cycle Assessment, or LCA, is a true “accounting” of consumption and emissions through the entire life cycle of a product. An LCA assesses the potential impact of a product or service on the environment throughout all its life stages, from the extraction of natural resources to the final processing of waste.

Only through a Life Cycle Assessment can a manufacturer look at the manufacturing process and how each step impacts the environment, and how each step can be adjusted or managed for the most positive environmental outcome

According to experts such as the European Commission, Life Cycle Assessments are the best way of assessing the environmental impact of a product.
