We all have a responsibility to lower our footprint on this earth. Besides from measuring the climate footprint of existing products, you can use our tool in the design phase of product development. It helps you to make more sustainable choices of materials, production location, packaging, storage time, transport etc. from the start.
Use data to reduce footprint
As a subscribing customer, you get access to so much knowledge that used to be only for specialized experts in the field. And you get full information about the climate impact of all aspects of the lifecycle enabling you to relate and compare it to your own products and manufacturing.
When you have screened a product in our tool and obtained a result, your work doesn’t end here. Now the most important work begins. Now you analyze your results to figure out how you can reduce the climate impact of your products. Our tool makes it easy to see which parts of the life cycle carry the largest parts of the emissions and with the alternate screening function, you can test various alternative design options and immediately see how it impacts the CO2eq emissions.
Use the tool when designing
You can also use our tool in the design phase of product development. It can be used as an encyclopedia where you can:
- look up materials and see their climate impact
- find out which countries have the cleanest energy mix
- test the most effective packaging and transport methods
- get inspired to design more responsible products from the beginning.
You simply enters an amount of any given material to see what it emits. Then you can test where in the world it is most climate friendly to produce such a material and where it is best to source it.
