What can we do for you?
Life cycle analysis (LCA) is a powerful and flexible analytical tool capable of identifying strengths and weaknesses along the value chain of a product or service and calculating its environmental footprint.
The results of the analysis are fundamental to plan a program to optimize environmental performance, as well as having a high scientific value since they are regulated by international standards UNI EN ISO 14040 and UNI EN ISO 14044.
The results of the analysis are also the crucial tool for an effective environmental marketing campaign.
Eco-design is a technique regulated by the European Union with Directive 2009/125/EC.
At the basis of a sustainable economic model there is the formalization of an essential concept: the sustainability of a product or a service is possible if the design is carried out with a view to eco-compatibility.
Using the LCA methodology, it is possible to develop a project that is part of a broader vision of circular economy and that guarantees environmental sustainability “from cradle to grave”.
Defined by the standards UNI EN ISO 14064 and UNI EN ISO 14067, the Carbon Footprint allows the quantification and calculation of greenhouse gas emissions during all phases of the life cycle of the system.
Many companies already use this system to undertake carbon management processes aimed at neutralizing greenhouse gas emissions and take part, with their environmental commitment, to the challenge of climate change.
ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATIONS AND LABELLING
Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) certifies the environmental performance of a product according to the guidelines of the UNI EN ISO 14025 standard reference.
Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) and Organisation Environmental Footprint (OEF) are two methodologies developed by the European Union aimed at standardizing and standardizing the application of the LCA methodology for environmental assessments of products and organisations.
Life Cycle Costing
In a similar way to LCA analysis for the calculation of environmental impact, the application of the Life Cycle Costing (LCC) methodology makes it possible to assess the direct and indirect costs associated with all phases of the life cycle of a product, process or service.
This assessment can also quantify the economic value of the environmental impacts that are produced during the life cycle.
The results obtained are a very useful tool to support decisions aimed at improving the economic performance of the company.
Our team provides you with qualified support for appropriate environmental communication.
Communication is an integral part of the UNI EN ISO 14021 regulations, which clearly define how environmental results are to be communicated.
Incorrect environmental communication can lead to disadvantageous outcomes, negatively influencing the success of a marketing campaign, or resulting in corrective measures and sanctions.
In addition to the analyses proposed above, which comply with international standards, we have the possibility to develop fully customizable projects, with the aim of obtaining results useful to understand the related environmental dynamics.
