Improving environmental outcomes requires systems approaches that consider impacts that extend beyond a factory or company’s walls. By using life cycle assessment (LCA), companies can identify the best opportunities to reduce environmental impacts, informing decisions relating to material choice, supply chains, production processes, in-use impacts, and end of life management. Relying on new insights from LCA, companies can prioritize their efforts in meeting their sustainability goals and achieve meaningful change.
