A product which has had its life cycle emissions calculated and negated is carbon neutral. Click here if you want to find out how you can offset the carbon emissions from your products and services.
A Products Life Cycle
Do you want to understand the greenhouse gas emissions your products and services emit throughout their life cycle, from “cradle to grave”? If so, complete the contact us form.
Life Cycle Analysis
A life cycle assessment, also known as a life cycle analysis, (LCA) is a “cradle to the grave” calculation of the greenhouse gas impact of a product or service. The assessment includes items such as the extraction and transportation of raw materials, manufacture of the product or service, packaging, freight, usage and disposal. An LCA must be completed to certify a product or service as carbon neutral with CRI.
Undertaking an LCA of your product or service will allow your business to:
- Quantify the greenhouse gas impact of the product or service
- Make a stepwise trace of the climate change impacts of the product or service; thereby allowing your business to identify and implement emission reduction strategies
- Disclose to the market the carbon footprint of the product or service assessed and the emissions reductions achieved, and
- Quantify the carbon offsets needed to certify your product or service as carbon neutral.
It is possible to achieve a carbon neutral rating on any product or service by implementing carbon reduction strategies and purchasing carbon offsets for any remaining carbon footprint.
We have highly qualified engineers and scientists to complete an LCA on your product or service. Our LCAs are conducted in compliance with the ISO 14000 series. To learn more, please complete the contact us form to get the process underway.
