Method for assessing the environmental impact

ACV : Life Cycle Analysis is a method of calculating the environmental impact of a product from cradle to grave: from the extraction of raw materials, to the processing procedure, until the product's end-of-life (waste). This is multi-criteria approach which takes into account all impacts the product may have on the environment. The life cycle analysis shows which stages have the most impact. From this record, we can implement actions to reduce these impacts.
