What is an LCA?

An LCA, or Life Cycle Assessment, is a standardized method for evaluating the environmental impacts of a product, process, or service throughout its entire life cycle – from raw material extraction, production, distribution, use, recycling to disposal. LCAs have been used for over 50 years and have become an important tool for sustainability assessment.

The methodology behind LCAs is established in international standards, including ISO 14040 and 14044, which outline the principles and frameworks for conducting LCAs. These standards guide the selection of methods, data handling, and reporting of results.

What is an EPD?

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a documentation of a product’s environmental impacts throughout its life cycle, from raw material extraction to production, distribution, use, and disposal.

What is sustainability?

Sustainability is an approach to living and conducting business in a way that meets our current needs without compromising future opportunities. It’s about striking a balance between human activities and the environment, so we don’t deplete natural resources or damage the ecosystems we rely on. This involves considering both economic, social, and environmental factors in our decisions and actions. The goal of sustainability is to ensure that we can maintain a healthy and thriving planet for ourselves and future generations.

What is a Sustainable Business Model?

As long as the world is changing, there will be a need for adaptation. This doesn’t mean that the strategic work of developing a green business model should constantly change, but that flexibility can advantageously be integrated as part of the strategy. For example, many companies utilize ISO management systems, which include a Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle, and at an organizational level, they establish a structure to support this dynamic process.
