Our fully automated technology draws information from 31 databases (14 proprietary) to provide a fast and accurate assessment of your products.
Our comprehensive assessment measures the environmental and social impact of your product across 5 key dimensions of sustainability.
The complex assessment is translated into a holistic score between 0-100 reflecting the overall sustainability of your product from materials sourcing to delivery. The simple scoring system makes it easy to track, measure and compare the sustainability of your products.
The score is assessed against the key 5 dimensions of sustainability to provide a detailed overview of your product’s impact.
This dimension measures the extent to which the product and packaging design, as well as the underlying business model, are contributing to slowing and closing material loops, via the R-strategies: reuse, repair, remanufacture, recycle.
It promotes end of life business models that facilitate the extension of material in use, product designs that are durable and materials that don’t lose quality at recycling.
The scope of this analysis includes ‘cradle-to-door’ emissions from fossil fuels, transportation, electricity use, industrial gasses, and land use change, the manufacturing (and assembly) of complete products, plus transportation up to the user.
In terms of carbon accounting, it covers scope 1, scope 2 and part of scope 3 emissions, excluding the product use phase and end of life.
This dimension evaluates the extent to which a product contributes to the potential negative impact on biodiversity or water depletion.
The analysis is made for product and all its packaging, contextualized with geospatial data to evaluate the importance of biodiversity and water access for each sourcing location.
“Sustainability” also means a sustainable, healthy and positive business relationships with the communities and people responsible for all stages of the production process.
This dimension evaluates the likelihood of human rights abuses and business malpractices in the supply chains of products, given the material type, location and production method.
While it is nearly impossible to create a product without generating any environmental impact, we try to promote a world where scarce resources are used for the purposes of highest necessity, and their use is justified by the value and function that the product delivers to the consumer.
