Our clients occasionally approach us with questions which push the current methods of the Life Cycle Assessment to the limit. Recognising these limits, and going beyond with new approaches and developments, is the challenge we willingly take on.
Examples are how regional water shortage or environmental impacts by eucalyptus plantations in the paper industry can be integrated in a Life Cycle Assessment. Or adapting national assessment methods for use in other countries. Many of the innovations arising from such assignments have become research projects – some funded by the Federal Office for Environment.
