The challenge

The environmental performance of products becomes increasingly important. Competitors distinguish themselves with the ecological advantages of their products. Due to requests from your customers and growing cost and competitive pressure you are searching for:

  • reliable product-related environmental information for instance, in the form of an ecological footprint

  • more transparency of the ecological impact ("hot spots") of your production processes as well as of upstream and downstream processes (supply of energy, resources and intermediate products as well as disposal and recycling processes)

  • minimizing your costs and risks during the whole life cycle of your product

  • a clear understanding of the energetic use and maintenance of your products from an ecological standpoint  

  • innovation and optimisation potential from an ecological and business point of view


What are the benefits of conducting life cycle assessments?

The preparation of an operational or product-related life cycle assessment helps you:

  • to identify the ecological hot spots in the value chain (life cycle assessment)

  • to gain transparency of potential cost-savings through ecological improvements

  • to improve your competitive position

  • optimization of your products considering ecological aspects (Eco Design)

  • to exploit opportunities to communicate

Our service in creating life cycle assessments

Our experienced life cycle assessments experts:

  • support you in the efficient data collection of all relevant influencing factors

  • work out life cycle assessments collaboratively with you which make comparisons of advantages and disadvantages of different product systems possible

  • support you to create environmental product declarations (EPDs)

  • support you to make an ecoefficiency analysis from a life cycle assessment by developing an additional cost analysis. Then, it is possible to identify the products and processes which are economically and ecologically more favourable than the alternatives
