Measure your performance with life cycle assessment
Your company knows your products better than anyone. With life cycle assessment (LCA), you can determine your performance, identify improvement opportunities and communicate with your departments to create buy-in.
Measurable and concrete environmental impact assessment
Good life cycle assessment results are valuable but not always easy to communicate. Formatting your environmental impact assessment results in a concrete, actionable and transparent way will make it easier for other departments to understand what to do.
The best life cycle assessment results come from peer reviewed, fully documented, ISO-compliant studies. You will need to collect more data for this type of study than for smaller-scale LCAs, but in return, a full-scale LCA will allow you to communicate data gaps, subjective choices and uncertainties in a clear and concise way.
If you already have the capacity for small-scale LCA, we can help you transition to full ISO-compliant LCA capability. This will unlock new ways to quantify, categorise and monitor environmental impacts. Together, we will determine the most significant impacts for your business and establish a baseline for your sustainability goals and communication.

We will help you decide the right type of environmental impact assessment, prepare and do that LCA, and determine the reporting format that will help you achieve your goals.
Depending on your business goals, we can help you with:
- LCA screening: quick, efficient LCA for internal communication. We help you find hot spots and improvement activities in a matter of days.

“PRé was able to make complicated methodological concepts very clear for non-experts, which was really useful when they moderated the group of stakeholders, with different levels of understanding of LCA. This resulted in common understanding and team focus on the shared goals. PRé uses a pragmatic approach, keeping things practical and elegant, but basing their work on really robust, scientific methodology.”
