Life Cycle Assessment - LCA is a tool for measuring the environmental impact of a product or service, standardized and recognized worldwide. It is based on ISO standards and adopted by the European Community through the PEF (Product Environmental Footprint) programme.
LCA considers the entire life cycle of the product, from the consumption of resources and materials to the production, use and end of life (cradle to grave approach). It is a precious source of information for the study and improvement of the product from an environmental point of view (eco-design). Furthermore, it is the basis of type III environmental declarations (EPD) and represents a requirement for many environmental certifications (Ecolabel, Level, etc.) and public procurements.
Our service consists of a guided path with 3 stages, gradually increasing the degree of in- depth analysis and investment. You may stop at the first stage or continue to the final, obtaining the environmental declaration verified by the third-party certifying body and published onto the programme operator site (environdec.com/library).
