In our globalised world we are increasingly confronted with the fact that the use of a product in one country can lead to environmental problems in other places. Environmental professionals consider the Life Cycle Assessment method as providing the most accurate measure of the overall impact on the environment of processes, companies, products and services.
An LCA covers all potential impacts along the whole life cycle e.g. of a product (from cradle to grave), and is able to take advantage of various assessment methods, providing thereby a basis broad enough to be integrated into overreaching issues involving political frameworks and commercial interests. The results of an LCA can therefore form a bridge between economic indices and eco-efficiency.
Thanks to the broad range of scientific backgrounds of our staff, we are in the ideal position to offer our clients environmentally optimised solutions in a large number of fields.
A modular structured, standardised product system allows an initial approach to a problem to be made by means of a simple LCA – with the option of extending it with further modules as soon as it becomes evident that a more in-depth study is required.
