Intertek LCA / PCF services - Sharpening your competitive edges
As more and more consumers, professional purchasers and organizations are concerned about the environmental impacts of products, manufacturers may need LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) methodology to quantify and balance the impacts of products as well as indicate such environmental information to public.
Meanwhile, the growing concerns of climate change have increasingly driven the demand for PCF (Product Carbon Footprint) information. Almost all the products that we consume are responsible for causing carbon dioxide emissions, through both direct and indirect consumption of energy and materials for their production, distribution, usage and disposal. Regulations related have an obvious trend from voluntary tending towards mandatory in future.
Why do I need LCA / PCF service?
What are LCA and PCF?
LCA stands for Life Cycle Assessment, which is a method for looking holistically at the environmental impacts of products or services from cradle top grave. Properly done, the outcome of a life cycle assessment is a science-based measure of environmental performance.
PCF is knew as Product Carbon Footprint, which is the total amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with a product (or service or business or organization), along its entire life cycle or a given time frame. It is often expressed and measured in terms of the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2).
As we know Carbon Footprint is a subset of complete Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).
