About Life Cycle Analysis

A life cycle analysis (LCA) measures the environmental impact of a product or service throughout the entire production chain.

There are several frameworks for LCA in use, the two main frameworks are ISO 14040 and ISO 14044 standards, which provide the baseline for most requirements and are internationally recognised.

What we offer

Cala Sustain has experience delivering Life Cycle Analysis for organisations through multiple sectors. LCAs are often carried out with a larger scale sustainability project. We help create bespoke frameworks and plans that fit your businesses needs and vision.

Who Life Cycle Analysis is for

A Life Cycle Analysis is key for any business looking to implement a sustainability, Procurement or CSR strategy, as it provides measurements and understanding of environmental footprints, allowing you to make informed decisions.

LCAs are important for businesses trying to win contracts, your clients will want to understand the environmental impacts of the product. For some public projects there are standardised tenders that your business will need to comply with. This means that to be eligible to tender for the contract, your business has to disclose the environmental data of your products.

 Benefits of a Life Cycle Assessment

  • Helps to create a baseline understanding of your environmental impacts, leading to greater sustainability strategy developments.
  • Supports innovation and product development, which can lead to increased efficiencies and future-proofing your organisation.

How Life Cycle Analysis works

Every business and product / service is unique. The scope of an LCA also varies, it could include the entire operation or simply be an assessment of one product or service.

We can help you:

  • Collect data from suppliers, crafting supplier data requests and ensuring you receive the information you need.
  • Create a Life Cycle Inventory (LCI), this can be the most complex part of an Life Cycle Analysis, if the scope of the assessment is large.
  • Develop metrics and a deep understanding of your supply chain, showing you where there is high risk and where the negative impacts are within the life cycle.
  • Provide recommendations to help you to continually improve your supply chain.
