The importance of LCA on product level

While certifications remain an important part of product development, it might be time to rethink their importance in favour of actual change. 

And ESG goals are an important tool to set new standards and make clear sustainability goals. But they must be transformed into real actions and a reduced carbon footprint. 

Conducting a thorough Life Cycle Assessment to find new ways of reducing emissions and more sustainable ways to reduce our impact on the environment can be even more instrumental to the global ESG agenda than meeting local certifications.

Because while certifications can help establish a baseline of sustainability, when one wishes to go beyond their standards and focus entirely on reducing CO2-emissions and recycling more, they offer little guidance.

That’s why LCAs should be the foundation for significantly improving our impact on the environment.
