Every Life Cycle Assessment, also known as Life Cycle Analysis, is
grounded on the same basic principle with varying areas of application
extending from carbon footprints, water balances, analyses of material
flows and processes to examinations of social and economic factors
facing an organisation.
By considering the whole life cycle of a product or service, incurred
environmental impacts can, not only be partially avoided, but be exposed
for analysis. This allows us to determine in which phase of life (whether it
be in the production of raw materials or to disposal) cause the greatest
harm to the environment. Therefore, specific organisation activities can be
both identified and adjusted to maximise environmental performance
where it is most beneficial.
To achieve this aim of environmental optimality, individual solutions are
necessary due to the diversity of requirements for various products and
branches of industry. PE INTERNATIONAL has broad experience in
completing Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) analyses across the spectrum of all significant industry branches uniquely equipping us to provide those individual solutions:
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA): Analyses and comparisons of product,
process and services according to the ISO standard covering the whole
life cycle from the production of raw materials to end of life.
Carbon Footprint: Calculations of greenhouse gas emissions stemming
from products as well as companies.
Water Footprint: Determine the balance of water consumption over the
course of the production chain, life cycle and at the organisation site.
Critical Review: Review of comparative Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) studies in accordance with the ISO standard.
Social LCA: Analysis and illustration of scalable social factors with
reference to products.
Life Cycle Costing (LCC): Analysis and illustration of the life cycle costs of a product.
Analysis of material flows: Record, analyse and optimise the energy and
material flows within a company or branch.
Determine the strategic risks and environmental optimisation potentials
of products at an early stage.
Identify the magnitude and relevance of each individual step within a
products life cycle. Which stage causes the greatest environmental
