Get the power tools to create sustainable success.

We have worked with some of the leading technology companies in the world. In fact, thinkstep has completed hundreds of projects with ICT companies, including  ecodesign assessments and programs for mobile phones, printers, computers, servers, semiconductors, car electric and electronic systems, e-motors, transformers, and many more products. With 20 years of global sustainability experience, we are deeply engaged in addressing the growing disclosure expectations on product carbon footprints, materials of concern, and labor practices in the supply chain, plus regulations on hazardous materials, toxicity, and end of life management. We don’t merely identify what you need to eliminate; we strategise with you to increase revenue, strengthen supply partnerships, and enhance your brand profile.

We help you succeed with:

Ecodesign and Innovation

We give you the critical tools that help you develop and implement a strategy for ecodesign that enables innovative products with reduced impact. We help you create a portfolio of innovative products at pace with your business that also have a lower environmental impact. See how our deep data, experience, and strategic expertise help companies understand and prepare for regulations like Ecodesign Directive (2009/125/EC) for Energy using Products (EuP) and Energy related Products (ErP) as well.

Product Environmental Footprint (PEF)

We can help with the development of PEF, a harmonised EU methodology for the calculation of the environmental footprint of products (including carbon) given that over 2,500 companies worldwide trust our Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) service and software to reveal environmental impact of processes from raw material production to disposal.

GaBi Software helps us to analyze the ecological performance of our products at the very beginning of our design process. GaBi gives us the data to assess and reduce the environmental impact of a product throughout its entire life cycle. EPDs are the basis of our Eco-Design strategy and a competitive advantage in an increasingly environmentally conscious market.
