Life Cycle Assessment provides an accurate picture of the true environmental trade-offs in product selection. By analyzing the impacts throughout a product life cycle you will gain a comprehensive view of the product and processes, an understanding of where improvements can be made and validity in your sustainability measures. It is your first step in the sustainability journey.
