Using LCA tools in the design phase reduced the environmental impact of one company’s products by 25%. Another lowered greenhouse gas emissions by 15% after identifying sustainability opportunities in its manufacturing processes. A third company saved $1.5 million by meeting its sustainability goals two years ahead of schedule.
Manufacturers are in a new phase of the going green wave. The discussion isn’t about whether they should go green, but about how and where to start.
Why Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) tools provide the perfect solution
These comprehensive tools of LCA evaluate the environmental impacts of your products and services throughout their entire life cycle, from raw material extraction to disposal.
By using LCA tools from the start of the product design phase, you can:
- Differentiate your products by demonstrating their sustainability
- Engage with consumers and stakeholders on sustainability issues
- Improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of your operations
- Identify opportunities to reduce your environmental impact
- Meet regulatory requirements and compliance standards
Not all LCA tools are created equal. The 3DExperience is an LCA tool game-changer.
Prior LCA options struggled with collecting and analyzing the vast amount of required data. The lack of standardization made comparisons with competitors difficult. The tools were difficult to integrate into the design phase. And the delayed insights were rarely integrated into the product.
Today with 3DExperience, your product’s digital twin interacts with external sources for data collection on demand. The tool assesses environmental metrics of complete or configured products or manufacturing definitions. It then layers in human activities for a complete view of environmental impacts. From the start of the design phase, the assessment creates an actionable roadmap to your best and greenest product yet.
3DExperience focuses you on the opportunities of the future. Transform the sustainability of your products and set yourself up for long-term success with this powerful tool.
