Increasing Sustainability Performance Through Life Cycle Assessment
Your company has a wealth of knowledge about your products’ life cycles and what improvements can be made. Creating buy-in for these improvements, however, may not be easy. Each department has its own priorities, and to keep sustainability on the agenda it’s essential to communicate in ways that align with those priorities.
Setting Your Sustainability Improvements Up For Success
You are aware of the value of good LCA results. To communicate that to the rest of the company, it is essential to translate your results into concrete, actionable and transparent information. This helps create understanding in people who aren’t aware of all LCA has to offer, and makes it easier for you to provide robust answers to detailed questions.
The best way to prepare for sharing LCA results is by doing a peer reviewed, fully documented, ISO-compliant study. Even though data collection is more intensive than for smaller-scale LCAs, a full-scale LCA will help you identify and manage data gaps, subjective choices and uncertainties.
PRé can ease the transition to full ISO-compliant LCA capability. We will help you unlock new levels of quantifying, categorising and monitoring environmental impacts. Together, we will determine the most significant impacts for your business and establish a baseline for comparison. This provides an excellent foundation for your sustainability goals and facilitates communicating improvements.
PRé’s LCA Advisory Services
Our consultancy team has years of experience conducting all types of LCA studies: from simple and efficient screenings to large ISO-compatible studies. This makes us uniquely qualified to support you in deciding what type of LCA you need to do to be able to communicate certain results, preparing and executing the LCA you decide on, and determining the reporting format that will help you achieve your goals.
If your business goals are clear, PRé can help you with:

- SimaPro training – regular and in-house training to help you analyse your company’s sustainability results yourself. We offer general and customised training.
In each of these cases, it is essential to evaluate the robustness of your conclusions. We help you with that by providing sensitivity and uncertainty analyses.

“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.”
