Life Cycle Assessment, Footprint Progress Label, Eco-design Software
Eco-design is a company approach aimed at including environmental criteria as well as technical and economic criteria from the design of your product or service. This approach allows you to combine technical quality and environmental quality.
The ultimate goal is to reduce the environmental impact of products and services by acting on their life cycle (extraction of raw materials, manufacturing, distribution, installation, use and end of life).
Eco-design allows you not only to reduce environmental impacts but also to better know your products and services. All teams are involved in the process, eco-design allows you to strengthen the links and motivation within your company.
Lastly, in a context where environmental considerations are more than growing, eco-design will allow you to stand out from the competition and meet the expectations of your customers.
