Sustainable development must include a holistic perspective considering three basic pillars: environment, economics and society.
Contactica evaluates and finds opportunities of sustainble development, using Life Cycle Sustainbility Assessment (LCSA), a combination of methods to evaluate environmental, economic and social impacts across the whole life cycle of products.
An LCSA is the result of combining three independent methodologies:
Only by considering the three pillars of sustainbility, the sustainable development of products and activities can be ensured.
The three assessments are based on ISO 14040, the international standard for LCA, although it is adapted to assess the economic and social impacts, as recommended by United Nations (reference a towards LCSA)
Actual committment with sustainble development requires accounting environment, economics and society impacts and develop strategies to avoid burden shifting among the three pillars of sustainability.
Do you want to really be fully committed to sustainbale development? Then, you should engange in the development of an LCSA. Performing LCA, LCC and S-LCA with common goals and scope allows the design of solid sustainbility strategies. LCSA has similar applications as LCA.
