Life Cycle Assessments (LCA)

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a powerful analytical technique that allows for the measurement of the carbon footprint of a specific product or service across its entire lifespan.

Overview

Performing an LCA on a product or service is a necessary step to determine its carbon footprint, which is a requirement for achieving many of the most common carbon-neutral product designations. The results of a Life Cycle Assessment can transparently support environmental claims for companies that want to position their products as an eco-friendly option in their industries.

Life Cycle Assessments are rigorous data-driven studies that evaluate environmental impacts from every stage of a product’s life cycle, from raw material acquisition through to product use and final disposal.
