A basis for greener processes and products - ‘Shonan Guidance Principles’
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA): Analyses and comparisons of product, process and services according to the ISO standard covering the whole life cycle from the production of raw materials to end of life.
Analyse your company's products and processes with the help of thinkstep's Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
- Carbon Footprint: Calculations of greenhouse gas emissions stemming from products as well as companies.
- Water Footprint: Determine the balance of water consumption over the course of the production chain, life cycle and at the organisation site.
- Critical Review: Review of comparative Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) studies in accordance with the ISO standard.
- Social LCA: Analysis and illustration of scalable social factors with reference to products.
- Life Cycle Costing (LCC): Analysis and illustration of the life cycle costs of a product.
Every Life Cycle Assessment, also known as Life Cycle Analysis, is grounded on the same basic principle with varying areas of application extending from carbon footprints, water balances, analyses of material flows and processes to examinations of social and economic factors facing an organisation.
Life Cycle Assessment - maximise your environmental performance
By considering the whole life cycle of a product or service, incurred environmental impacts can, not only be partially avoided, but be exposed for analysis. This allows us to determine in which phase of life (whether it be in the production of raw materials or to disposal) cause the greatest harm to the environment. Therefore, specific organisation activities can be both identified and adjusted to maximise environmental performance where it is most beneficial.
