Productivity meets Sustainability
MFA - a key role to resource efficiency and sustainability
The basis of sustainable engineering is a profound understanding of the principles of resource efficiency, life cycle thinking, industrial ecology, risk management, sustainable production and consumption. Sustainable engineering involves and requires a systems understanding of technological, economic, environmental, and sustainability issues from the corporate, process, product, supply chain, and regional perspectives.
This understanding is reached through expertise and experience in applying the following sustainability assessment methods and tools:
- material flow analysis (MFA) and management
- material flow cost accounting (MFCA)
- life cycle assessment (LCA)
- environmental footprinting
- carbon footprinting
