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. Adhering to ISO 14040, ISO 14044, and ISO 14071 standards, our LCA studies are subject to comprehensive external reviews to ensure transparency and accountability. LCAs, and carbon footprint assessments, play pivotal roles in guiding sustainable decision-making proceses and promoting responsible practices.
