Quantitative Sustainability Assessment

“If you cannot measure it you cannot fix it“

We do research and develop tools aimed at quantifying sustainability in a life cycle perspective.

We provide valid and quick tools for sustainability assessment.

We adapt LCA tools for specific technology domains.

We enable decision makers to solve environmental issues without creating new ones.
