Trucost Factors

Communicate Your Results in an Engaging Way

Current LCA studies provide a comprehensive assessment of a products environmental footprint, from raw material extraction through manufacturing processes, in use and end of life phases. Environmental indicators such as climate change, energy, land and water use, and others are used to assess a products design across the various stages of its life.

LCA metrics typically present impacts as e.g. tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents or cubic meters of induced water scarcity. Converting these impacts to the common unit US dollars as TRUCOST factors, prevents the necessity of comparing trade-offs between different environmental issues and presents information in technical terms which are not as accessible to business people or consumers.

 

 

TRUCOST NCA provides a common economic metric to compare relative scale and risk of different impacts and the ability to communicate in a more engaging manner.
