"At Miele, we use LCAs especially when faced with fundamental decisions in product development. Miele has an excellent reputation with both customers and stakeholders, so we make sure our products are not only high in value for the customer but are also beneficial for the environment. Of course, we also include the longevity of our products in our analyses and often discover confirmation of our brand philosophy. We chose Umberto so we can easily exchange data and material flow models with our long-time partner, the Öko-Institut (Institute for Applied Ecology)."
