Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) & Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) Services 

Understand, improve and communicate the sustainability performance of your products. 

Make LCA Part of Your Products’ DNA   

The time for empty promises and loose marketing claims about the environmental performance of products is over. Governments, B2B and B2C customers, investors and the general public want to see accurate measurements of the environmental impacts of goods and services. Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) address this need. Sphera’s sustainability consultants help future-proof your products and meet the information demands of your stakeholders by conducting LCAs using Sphera’s best-in-class, industry-based Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) data and our leading LCA software.

Inform Your Decarbonization Strategy with Insights Grounded in Facts  

Product Carbon Footprints (PCFs) are based on LCA methodology and enable your company to quantify greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for each stage of your products’ lifecycles. Sphera’s sustainability experts guide you through the calculation process or perform PCFs for you, helping you identify carbon hotspots in your products’ value chains. This provides your company with data-driven insights for communicating with your suppliers, customers and other relevant stakeholders to achieve emissions reductions and advance your decarbonization strategy toward a netzero goal. 

Avoid Environmental Burden Shifting to Protect Your Brand Reputation 

Ruled by the globally accepted ISO 14040 and 14044 standards, LCA takes you beyond carbon emissions and provides your company with a big picture of your product’s environmental performance. With more than 25 years’ experience in conducting LCAs and deep industry and material knowledge, Sphera’s sustainability consultants help you focus on the sustainability indicators where improvements are most needed. At the same time, we ensure that environmental burdens are not shifted to other, less obvious impacts. Whether you are looking to calculate water footprints of your products or conduct Social LCA (S-LCA), Life Cycle Costing (LCC), or comparative LCA studies we can help you accelerate your efforts and deliver results that improve your product sustainability with optimal efficiency.

Maximize the Business Value of LCA by Spreading Its Results Across the Organization 

LCA modeling is a complex process that requires solid methodological expertise and technical versatility, but LCA results can benefit different departments across your enterprise.  Product designers can incorporate LCA insights into product development to create innovative, more sustainable products. Sales will use the results to provide science-based evidence of products’ environmental strengths. Marketing can back up “green” claims with solid facts and figures. Sphera’s sustainability consultants develop user-friendly eco-design tools for your company that help your entire organization quickly understand and best leverage the results of sophisticated LCA studies for individual products, product lines and your entire portfolio
