Life Cycle Workshop

"We were involved with the topic in a pilot project when we received the invitation to the Life Cycle Workshop. It was very helpful that open problems were addressed, and solutions were presented at the workshop. We were asking ourselves exactly these questions: How do you get suitable data sets? Are all data well maintained? How can we check that?
I also really liked the open workshop atmosphere, so that we could easily get into conversation with each other. This is probably due to the fact that the topic is relatively new and there are no established ways of thinking or structures yet".

Bianka Engelmann, EHS Manager and Waste Management, Wago Kontakttechnik GmbH & Co. KG

CO2 Berechnungen zu erstellen

"I was particularly interested in the CO2 analyses today. We want to find out whether it is possible to create CO2 calculations for our customers based on an existing Umberto model. If, for example, we have created an energy balance for a company, we would like to develop an LCA model from it and draw the CO2 calculation from the energy evaluation. It is very inspiring for me to find out how other companies use the LCA software, because each user approaches the use of Umberto in their own way and shows the different possibilities that the software offers."
