LCA in the Automotive Supply Chain

Providing Valid LCA Data in the Automotive Sector

Because more and more OEMs in the automotive sector set carbon neutrality targets or CO2 reductions, automotive suppliers face the challenge of evaluating their environmental performance and providing valid carbon data to their customers.

thinkstep offers the full breadth of environmental services, software and data for all aspects of product sustainability and carbon neutrality in the supply chain. Having made the first Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for a car in the early 90's, thinkstep has nearly 30 years experience in the automotive sector.

We support automotive OEMs and their suppliers to obtain valid carbon emissions data and improve the sustainability of their products, be it a complete vehicle or a single component.

In addition, we provide analysis and consulting services to suppliers and OEMs that wish to increase their knowledge of the environmental impacts of their products. Our solutions are tailored for each client and involve a comprehensive needs assessment.
