Life Cycle Assessment
CODDE helps you in the realization of your LCA
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a method of assessing the environmental impacts of a product or service. This method is quantitative, multi-criteria, multi-step and is based on the functionality of the product or services.
All stages of the life cycle (raw material extraction, manufacturing, distribution, installation, use and end of life) are taken into account in the assessment of impacts.
The Life Cycle Assessment methodology, standardized internationally by ISO 14040 and ISO 14044, follows four main steps:
- Definition of the objectives and scope of the study
- Inventory and inventory analysis
- Environmental impact assessment
- Results interpretation
This method is ideal for controlling the environmental footprint of products and services.
An LCA solution for each of your needs
Know the environmental footprint of your products / services to perform an initial diagnosis.
Communicate on the environmental footprint of your products/services to businesses or to the general public.
Understand and analyze the environmental issues of your products/services to eco-design.
Bureau Veritas CODDE works on R&D projects with multiple agencies in the LCA related areas.
