A Life Cycle Assessment calculates the amount of emissions generated and energy consumed. It allows companies to evaluate the impact that a product or service has on the environment over its entire life cycle, from the extraction of raw materials to waste disposal.
A Life Cycle Assessment is the currently the only way of breaking down a product’s manufacturing process. It means we can determine exactly how each stage affects the environment and how these stages could be adapted or managed differently to reduce the environmental impact.
This process continues to guide us in our technological and manufacturing decisions. It also impels us to be more careful in choosing our partners, and inspires us to create innovative products that are more eco-friendly.
