A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) lets you see your products’ environmental performance. On average, a single LCA takes months to do. If some features of the product change, the LCA is no longer correct, and often a new one needs to be done. Depending on the complexity, an LCA can cost between € 12,000 and € 25,000.
Companies often want to know about the environmental performance of their whole portfolio. Since an LCA has to be done for each product, and since it may soon be out of date and require a new LCA, today’s conventional LCA methods are impractical and extremely expensive for these companies.
The environmental management software from EcoChain gives you revolutionary new options for LCA, thanks to its method, called “Activity Based Footprinting”. Once the data have been input, an LCA can be done for the total the portfolio with just one click on the button. Instead of taking months or even years, it can take just minutes.
An LCA from EcoChain doesn’t go out of date. Enter your new data, such as a new packaging element or cleaner energy source. The program calculates it and changes the footprint. With one click you can have the updated LCAs right then. And at a fraction of the cost of a single conventional LCA.
LCA is a part of the EcoChain environmental management program. If you only want to make one LCA, then “EcoChain LCA-only” is the answer. Contact us for details.
