Life Cycle Analysis

Quantifying carbon within energy systems from cradle to grave.

Data-informed Decarbonization Decisions

Life cycle analysis (LCA) provides a pathway to decarbonization and a net zero future in inherently complex industries and technologies.

Product Disposition

Understanding the full life cycle impacts of products—beyond how they are created and used, but also how they are disposed—ensures customers are fully informed when comparing products and solutions. This allows them to confidently make business decisions while considering the full environmental impact.


Supply Chain Comparisons

LCA defines emissions from diverse supply chains on a common base to more easily compare final products. It connects and scales the entire supply chain so clients can see the effect of reductions. This data helps organizations be better environmental stewards.


Supply Chain Comparisons Operational Profiling

Our customizable, engineering-based tools measure operations and products throughout the hydrocarbon value chain and evaluate new technologies. This data allows customers to act decisively and with full transparency. It also lets them monitor progress and adjust policies and processes for optimal results.
