Become sustainable with a life cycle thinking
Becoming sustainable is a must for all organizations and individuals in order to ensure a bright future for ours’ and future generations. The ultimate goal is clear, but how do we get there?
Making any decision without assessing the potential environmental, economic and social impacts could lead to worse scenarios than the current one. Developing sustainable strategies help to identify hotspots, understand the impacts of products, processes and organizations, propose improvements and promoting science-based sustainable strategies.
The recommended method to achieve these objectives is applying Life Cycle Thinking methodologies (LCA, LCC, S-LCA) to consider the potential impacts we can induce in other places and stages of the product ‘s life cycle.
Contactica offers different services which can be adapted to your needs, context and possibilities.
80% of the Environmental impacts are consequence of the design of products. Eco-design , according to ISO 14006, considers the impacts along all the life cycle stages in the design and development of products with the aim of reducing adverse environmental impacts throughout a product’s life cycle. Contactica has developed Eco2Des for the modelling, simulation and multi-objective optimisation of industrial processes.
To verify the environmental and economic feasibility of products, processes and products developments, considering Environmental (LCA) and economic (LCC) impacts and performance throughout the whole value chain. Save time-to-market in the process using the Eco2dES tool.
To obtain a customised and exclusive tool to estimate the environmental impacts and economic performance of different scenarios. Eco-design and benchmark your products based on life cycle thinking.
The European Commission has developed a transparent system to assess investors in identifying investments that contribute to 6 environmental objectives without causing significant harm to other objectives. Large companies, banks and insurance companies will be the first to be forced to communicate the alignment of their activities with the EU Taxonomy. Contactica can help you to apply the taxonomy via a step-by-step approach: 1) identification of eligible activities, 2) demonstration of substantial contribution, 3) validation that no significant harm on remaining objectives is not produced, 4) validation of minimum social safeguards and 5) calculation of alignment of investments with the EU Taxonomy. SMEs can apply voluntarily the EU Taxonomy to define their activities and assets before it will be set as mandatory.
Contactica can go the way to being sustainable with you with any combination of our services. We can propose ideas, quantify environmental impacts, optimize products and processes, perform life cycle sustainability assessments, develop marketing strategies or evaluate any initiative you would like to carry out.
