What is a Life Cycle Assessment?
The Life Cycle Assessment is a multi-stage and multi-criteria analysis, which allows to measure the environmental impacts generated by a product or a service, and this, throughout its life cycle: from the extraction of raw materials to the end of life, passing by the stages of manufacture, use, etc.
What goes into doing an LCA?
The realization of an LCA can be particularly interesting for :
- public authorities (whether they intervene at international, national or European level)
- industrial companies.
However, any structure offering products and/or services has the possibility to carry out an LCA.
When should I do an LCA?
A Life Cycle Assessment is useful :
- to identify the environmental issues and impacts of a company;
- to develop eco-designed products;
- to compare the environmental impact of its products with those of its competitors;
- to consolidate its brand image and stand out from the competition.
Why should I do an LCA?
LCA is composed of 4 steps, which are totally interdependent:
1. Define the scope of the study and the functional unit used;
2. Carry out the inventory of life cycle data;
3. Evaluate the environmental impacts;
4. Interpret the results.
