Carbon Footprint Calculation
Carbon footprint calculation is a scientific method to measure the carbon emissions (also known as Greenhouse Gas Emissions) of a product, a building, or a service through its life cyles. We could conduct carbon footprint calculation for you according to internationally recognised standards (e.g. ISO 14067, PAS 2050), to help you develop a holistic and scientific view regarding the global warming potential of the product, the building, or the service.
It will provide a baseline for further carbon emission reduction strategies and also carbon neutrality path design.
Life Cycle Assessment
An LCA adds up the interactions with the environment which take place during the included life cycle stages. Based on your needs, we could carry out LCA study for your products, buildings or service according to ISO 14040/14044 standards/framework.
Further comparative LCA study or eco-design could also be provided with the aim of product and service optimisation in terms of environmental impacts reduction.
Environmental Product Declaration
EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) is a report based on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of products or service. It is used to convey information about the potential impacts on environment and human health during products' or service's life cycle stages that are included in the system boundary (cradle to gate, cradle to gate with options, or cradle to grave).
We have published more than 50 EPDs with various EPD program operators worldwide. We work closely with international EPD operators, including EPD Norge, IBU (Germany), the International EPD System (Sweden), EPDItaly, SCS (North America), UL (USA), PEP Passport (France), INIES (France), EPD Danmark, and the Dutch National Environmental Database (Nationale Milieudatabase NMD). We could accompany you and guide you through the whole process until the EPD is officially registered and published.
Cradle to Cradle Certification
Instead of being less bad, we aim for products with a positive contribution on environmental, economic and social level. The Cradle to Cradle Certified® Product Standard is an advanced science-based, multi-attribute standard for designing and making safe and circular products. Cradle to Cradle® is a practical and verified approach to generate an optimization pathway towards safe and circular products within a proven framework for innovation. Categories covering Material Health, Product Circularity, Clean Air & Climate Protection, Water and Soil Stewardship, Social Fairness, and General Requirements will be comprehensively assessed during the certification process. Based on ratings in each of these categories, a product or product group can be certified at the level of Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum. It positions your company as a leader in sustainability and helps build a positive brand image, while creating new circular business models and market opportunities.
We could support you by defining this pathway to measurable improvement and innovation. With a pre-assessment and feasibility study, an overview of where you stand will be obtained. After that, an estimation of what you need to “invest” to get the certification done will be provided, so that you could decide if you would like to move forward with it. We will guide you through the whole certification process, which will also be a process of rethink, redesign, and reposition.
Sustainable Supply Chain Management
Globalisation has made the management of our supply chain more complex than it used to be. A transparent, traceable, sustainable supply chain is the key of making excellent products and providing superior service. Let's pay attention to the hidden part of the iceberg.
We could help you build your supply chain management system from ESG (Environmental, social, and cooperate governance) perspective, and evaluate your suppliers according to professional ESG metrics.
LCA Training Programs
With the trend of applying carbon footprint and life cycle theory, more and more brands in various industries are organizing their own LCA team, training own LCA talents, and building LCA abilities internally. The sustainable development of products and enterprises is integrated into the organizational structure.
we have rich experience in providing customized training programs and carrying out related training for leading enterprises in the industry. No matter you are new to LCA or a professional with some basics, we can develop a suitable training program for you according to your needs.
