  • Possibility of an individual interface connection with SAP or other systems

We will gladly give you a live demonstration in our web presentation: ▶ View dates

A factor for success: integrated life cycle databases

Data are the basis of a good life cycle assessment, but research is very time-consuming. Save time and nerves by integrating LCA databases (LCI databases).

  • Standard integration of the two market leaders ecoinvent and GaBi database(s) possible
  • ecoinvent database: Contains over 13'300 transparent, quality-checked data sets from various industries and areas. Provider is the non-profit association ecoinvent Association from Switzerland.
  • GaBi databases: Contain over 7'000 datasets available in various sector-specific databases. The data is largely based on primary industry data. The provider is thinkstep AG from Germany.

Screening LCA for the identification of hot spots

You would like to make a rough estimate in the first step? With a 'Screening LCA' you reduce the effort, the complexity and the data collection for a first overview of the environmental impacts.

  • Examination of the main materials of the products using ecological rucksack data
  • Consideration of the "ecological rucksack" from the upstream and downstream chains with global average values
  • Quick overview of where the hot spots are located, which should be looked at more closely
