LCA and Supply Chain Services
Get the complete picture through production life cycle assessment
FirstCarbon Solutions Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) services go beyond assessing carbon footprint and GHG emissions to encompass water, waste, and a full spectrum of natural resources throughout your supply chain.
We’ll help you track and measure the sustainability of all your business inputs and outputs – how much waste you produce, how much water you consume and from where, and in what condition you return it to the environment. And of course, we’ll help you evaluate where you can conserve resources to reduce costs and risks throughout your supply chain – improving both your environmental performance and your profitability.
Outsource the administrative tasks and data entry components of your LCA to FirstCarbon Solutions, and you’ll dramatically reduce your overall program costs as well.
LCA or Carbon Footprint?
To optimize economies of scale and minimize costs, many organizations elect to conduct a full LCA at the time they conduct a carbon footprint. FirstCarbon Solutions encourages this practice for several reasons:
- Implementing carbon footprint, energy efficiency, and LCA measures concurrently is more cost-effective, as they share much of the same data.
- Performing a life cycle assessment of your entire manufacturing process lets you simultaneously evaluate multiple products, product lines, and processes.
- LCA data can be used to drive a wider range of business decisions to improve supply-chain and product line sustainability and profitability.
LCA can make you a more competitive supplier
Retail giants around the world increasingly require transparent and comprehensive sustainability data from suppliers of the products they carry, so consumers can make informed choices.
