LCA Consulting services for Life Cycle Assessment

An analysis of all environmental impacts of your products is very time-consuming and complex. Our consulting team, consisting of LCA experts and environmental engineers, will support you step by step in creating meaningful life cycle assessments.

LCA consulting for clients

Do you know your products' environmental impacts from cradle to grave?

Life Cycle Assessments, or LCAs for short, are used to analyze the environmental impact of products, processes, and services over the entire life cycle of a product. 

An LCA analyzes the resources used and emissions caused from resource extraction to production processes to waste disposal in order to assess the overall environmental impact.

Would you like to discuss how you can calculate your LCA? Our LCA consulting team looks forward to meeting you!
