Case studies on CO2 balances and LCAs

Case studies on CO2 balances and LCAs

Umberto can be used to determine either climate impact (CO2 balance) or the overall environmental impacts (LCA) of a product in a wide variety of industrial areas. Using individual case studies, we will show you how companies like BRITA and Fujitsu have successfully mastered these challenges.

Case studies on process optimization and resource efficiency

Case studies on process optimization and resource efficiency

One possible production process optimization goal is to reduce resource consumption. Our case studies show how this concept is being applied in the chemical industry and to Europe‘s largest offset printing operation.

"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)."
