Life cycle assessment LCA overview
Measure environmental impacts

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

LCA is the science-based method used to evaluate the environmental impact of a product or process throughout its entire life cycle. It considers all stages, from raw material extraction to disposal or recycling. It helps you quantify environmental impacts of your products and processes, enabling you to make informed decisions and improvements in the sustainability of your company.

Life Cycle Assessment with Ecochain

Assess any material

Evaluate materials like metals, plastics, fabrics, glass and more. Access associated data on the environmental impacts including extraction, processing, transportation, and disposal. Design alternatives with lower carbon footprints, higher recyclability, and reduced toxicity.

Zoom into hotspots

Analyze the environmental impacts of different materials, components and manufacturing processes involved in the production of your product. Consider factors like energy consumption, water usage, waste generation, and emissions. Doing this enables you to identify the major contributors to your impact and make necessary changes.

Multi-level insights

View results on a supply chain, company, processes, product and material level. Identify high-impact products and prioritize your R&D initiatives to products where it truly matters.

Verify your claim

Create verifiable LCA results with our LCA software solutions. Our software empowers our customers to create LCAs in a broad range of standards. Write LCA reports or EPDs according to the EN15804+A2:2019 and submit your EPD at several Programme Operators such as: EPD International, EPD Norge or MRPI-EPD.

Increase credibilty

Create high quality LCAs by using primary data. Our software visually supports collecting all necessary life cycle inventory (LCI) data. Increase the credibility of your LCA results by using primary data in your calculations. The more data you collect directly from your supply chain, the better. Preferably you only use production specific measurements. This will increase the accuracy and credibility of your LCA
