Efficiently using resources and energy consequentially bring about both
economic and ecological advantages. By enacting efficiency measures,
organisations simultaneously save costs and reduce environmental
impacts and risks. The ever increasing scarcity of resources is provoking
growing numbers of organisations to find alternatives to traditional energy
sources. This often involves changing energy supplies, procedures or
choice of supplier.
However, a narrow focus on energy and resources hardly facilitates the
completion of complex analyses aimed to quickly identifying solutions
and alternatives. Taking this into account, environmental impacts do not
have to be directly considered in order to be reduced. We aim rather to
perform a simplified Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to calculate the degree to which material and energy amount inputs can be decreased without incurring any additional environmental burdens.
Using resource and energy consumption as key parameters, we concentrate both on reducing consumption and finding potential alternatives. This allows for a much more exhaustive analysis by weighingthe benefits and drawbacks of various scenarios and thus providing a basis for making decisions.
Reduce energy demand and judge alternative solutions
Benchmark your processes to ‘Best Available Technology’ and to
‘Average in your Line of Business’. Benchmark within your process chain,
e.g. with regard to different suppliers.
Assess your material production through an environmental lens by using
a life cycle perspective.
Use GaBi software tool internally enabling your organisation to run fast
simulations of technology changes.
Get knowledge regarding the significance of the indirect effects of
resource and energy supplies.
Generating understanding of Life Cycle Thinking and integrate it into day-to-day business on all levels.
Obtain solid information regarding the environmental impacts of processes and products for the use of external communications.
