Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a systematic method for evaluating the environmental impacts of a product, process, or service throughout its entire life cycle. This includes stages such as raw material extraction, manufacturing, distribution, use, and disposal. LCA helps identify opportunities to improve environmental performance, reduce resource use, and minimize emissions.

Conducting an LCA involves compiling an inventory of relevant energy and material inputs and outputs, assessing the potential environmental impacts, and interpreting the results to make informed decisions. Businesses use LCA to develop more sustainable products, enhance efficiency, and meet regulatory requirements. It also helps consumers make more environmentally conscious choices by providing transparent information about a product's environmental footprint.
