Products Life Cycle Assessment & Ecodesign Solutions

Measuring the Environmental Impact of your Products

Business Challenge

In the conscience-focused marketplaces of the 21st century, the demand for eco-friendly products is increasing amongst end-users. Local and international environmental regulations have emerged, obliging manufacturers and retailers to re-evaluate their environmental and carbon footprint. Adopting an ecodesign approach can help you improve the environmental impacts of your products - and therefore enable you to comply with the legislation. So how can you comply and benefit?

Solution

The Electrical and Electronics (E&E) market has been using Environmental Assessments (Product Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) Footprints) and Declarations (Product Ecological Profiles - PEPs) to demonstrate Environmental Impacts, and improvements, for their E&E products for many years. Clients in other consumer product sectors are also now using LCA Footprints and Software to identify a product’s environmental impact - including carbon footprint - in order to develop improvement solutions.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why should I be concerned about the environmental impact of my products?

    Complying with the EU’s Ecodesign for Energy using Product (EuP) Directive requires you to demonstrate knowledge about your product’s environmental assessment (LCA Footprint) as well as the energy usage. Our LCA software and test labs worldwide can assist in simply identifying impact and energy usage whilst advising on how to improve the impact.

  • How do I communicate about my green credentials?

    Designing “green” products is a first step: you also need to let your customers know about it. Our environmental experts will help you define a relevant communications strategy, assisting you with the labelling of consumer products and with your Environmental Product Declarations (ISO 14025).

  • What does ecodesign take into account?

    Ecodesign is a design management process that takes into account the environmental impacts of a product during its whole lifecycle, including the following phases: procurement, manufacturing, distribution, use and end of life.
