Saint-Gobain has been a pioneer in Life Cycle Assessments (LCA), performing its first LCA in 1990 to quantify the impacts of an insulation products. Initially, Saint-Gobain was utilizing various LCA tools across different teams. Since 2013, they’ve worked to scale their LCA solutions and harmonize the tools and practices across all departments.
The LCA for Experts tool has enabled them to develop LCA models for multiple product families and use the results for publication of EPDs and eco-innovation. However, LCA experts had plenty of complex tasks on their plate so empowering their non-expert stakeholders to calculate and run their own LCAs and EPDs was the next step in driving sustainability efforts forward.
Sphera’s LCA for Experts + LCA Calculator Duo has enabled Saint-Gobain to develop LCA models for multiple product families, use the results for publication of EPDs and eco-innovation, and share those models across the organization.
