The main tool used to assess the sustainability level of products and processes is Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).
The environmental sustainability of a product or process originates mainly in the design phase.
This is one of the reasons why Ernestomeda invests so much in research into the best solutions within the green paradigm applied to design.
This analysis method assesses the entirety of a product or service’s interactions with the environment, considering its whole life cycle, starting from the sourcing of the raw materials, by way of their processing, the various production activities, distribution, use (and any reuse), maintenance and final disposal.
Ernestomeda performs regular LCAs on its products and has drawn on its lengthy experience in this area to define its own “Ecodesign” procedure.
