Reduce Scope 123 Emissions

The scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions classification system was developed in the 1990s to help organisations understand and manage their greenhouse gas emissions. It is now widely accepted and used by governments, investors, and other stakeholders to assess the climate impact of organisations. 

Turn EPDs into LCAs

LCAs and EPDs are both valuable tools for assessing the environmental performance of products and services. However, they each have their own strengths and weaknesses. LCA is a more comprehensive tool, but it is also more complex and time-consuming. EPDs are a more standardized and accessible tool, but they may not be as comprehensive as an LCA. 

Improve Sustainability in Furniture Design

Furniture is a major contributor to environmental impacts, from the extraction of raw materials to the disposal of furniture at the end of its life. Sustainable furniture design is the practice of designing furniture that has a lower environmental impact. 

There are many ways to design furniture sustainably.

Maximise Carbon Efficiency

Over the last two years, we’ve conducted independent LCA (Life Cycle Assessment), or sustainability design assessments on over 500 retail fixtures for more than 40 global brands. 
 
Obtaining and processing the data to complete these LCA certificates has not been easy, but the 50,000+ calculations we’ve produced are highly insightful. Best of all, they allow us to benchmark Carbon Efficiency.
