In order to get a full picture of your business and its impact on the environment we recommend getting an LCA. It is the best way to find comprehensive solutions that are specific and unique to your business model. It will identify the most meaningful and cost effective ways to reduce emissions. There are different kinds of LCAs for different needs.
- Screening. This is a general assessment which identifies hot spots of emissions or waste.
- Single product. This type of LCA analyzes the carbon footprint of a specific individual product life cycle.
- Multi-Product Life Cycle Assessment/Comparative LCA. The comparative or multi-product LCA assess the impact of several products. This can be a comparison of multiple of your own products or yours and another product on the market.
- Packaging Life Cycle Assessment. This assessment focuses just on packaging. Packaging can really make or break how your brand is perceived. It’s vital to have a good approach and provide a memorable experience.
