Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

Service > Impact mapping across the product and service life cycle

Except offers Life Cycle Assessment for impact comparisons between products or services. LCA is one of the standard tools in an industrial ecologist’s toolbox. At Except, LCA methodology is often used as part of our integrated sustainability assessments. We also offer LCA as a stand-alone service. In addition to standard LCA outputs, Except specializes in visualizing the impact chain, making the complex data of a typical LCA easy to communicate and beautiful to look at. Many of our visualized life cycle inventories are confidential, but you can see a few examples in our map library here (link to system mapping dossier).
