The Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association’s (CHSA) new Fact Sheet offers its members and others in the industry valuable guidance on the challenge of assessing the environmental impact of a product over its full life cycle.
A full life cycle assessment of the environmental impact of a product is an important step towards achieving sustainability. It spans the initial extraction of the raw materials through to the disposal of the product and its component parts at the end of its life.
The assessment process is detailed and complex, requiring input from throughout the supply chain. This Fact Sheet is designed for companies with limited internal expertise dedicated to sustainability. It outlines the four phases of a Life Cycle Assessment – goal and scope definition, inventory analysis, impact assessment and interpretation. It indicates the key questions to ask during each phase, mapping those questions across the stages of a product’s life cycle.
The Life Cycle Assessment Fact Sheet is the latest contribution to the CHSA’s Roadmap to Sustainability. Built on five pillars – product, packaging, transportation, social values and corporate environmental impact – the Roadmap offers CHSA members a framework for building their own sustainability strategy.
