About our LCA

Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) are systematic approaches to assess the environmental impacts of a product - or service - throughout its entire life cycle, including material extraction, production, use, and disposal. To ensure transparency and accuracy, our LCA studies are adherent to ISO 14040 and ISO 14044 standards, and some of our LCAs are subject to external reviews (ISO 14071). LCAs and carbon footprint assessments, play pivotal roles in guiding sustainable decision-making processes and promoting responsible practices.
