LCA & EPD
A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) can identify the environmental impact (in CO2 emissions, water, land use etc.) of a product or organization throughout its life cycle. LCA results can be used to understand the hotspots of your product in the value chain and to drive sustainability improvements. It is also used for Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), providing environmental performance information to clients.
Furthermore, an LCA can be used to compare the environmental performance of your product in comparison to competing products. Get in touch and see how an LCA can help improve the effectiveness of your product or business.
Climate & Energy
It is becoming increasingly important to monitor, manage and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and connected energy use. Measuring your carbon footprint is an advantageous way to start reviewing the overall impact your product or organisation has on the environment and society, and developing an emission reduction strategy or even becoming carbon neutral as an organisation.
Whether you are looking to calculate your carbon footprint, understand your energy use, develop a carbon strategy, or understand where to start for your organization, Ecomatters can support you.
Businesses all over the world are paying more attention to reporting on their sustainability performance, specifially regarding Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG). Long term investors such as pension funds and increasingly consumers are interested in ESG performance of a company. An important indicator of sustainability is a company’s climate change impact, or cabon footprint.
By measuring and reporting your carbon footprint, you can begin to put in place emissions management initiatives to reduce emissions in the future. Our strategic advice, target-setting and reporting services ensure that sustainability objectives are met and clearly communicate to stakeholders.
