Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

LCAs are the modern approach to calculate the environmental impact and the overall value of a product. The assessments are usually very complex and sophisticated.

It is difficult to supply complete results because to calculate the life cycle value of a product all components and their interaction have to be valued over all stages of a product’s life.

Beginning with sourcing and manufacturing. Followed by Installation, Usage and end-of-life aspects.

There is no standard for these assessments.

The main targets are:

  • sustainable sourcing of used materials (like timber)
  • efficient manufacturing and administration
  • long term energy efficiency
  • low maintenance
  • long life cycle
  • recyclable and reusable product & components
  • reduced impact of transport at any stage of the life cycle
