Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) enables your organisation to analyse the entire life cycle of your products or services with regard to their environmental impacts and to display these anaylses in a transparent way. Every Life Cycle Assessment, also known as Life Cycle Analysis, is grounded on the same basic principle with varying areas of application extending from carbon footprints, water balances, analyses of material flows and processes to examinations of social and economic factors facing an organisation.

By considering the whole life cycle of a product or service, incurred environmental impacts can, not only be partially avoided, but be exposed for analysis. This allows us to determine in which phase of life (whether it be in the production of raw materials or to disposal) cause the greatest harm to the environment. Therefore, specific organisation activities can be both identified and adjusted to maximise environmental performance where it is most beneficial.

To achieve this aim of environmental optimality, individual solutions are necessary due to the diversity of requirements for various products and branches of industry. PE INTERNATIONAL has broad experience in completing Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) analyses across the spectrum of all significant industry branches uniquely equipping us to provide those individual solutions:
