“By understanding the environmental impact of their choices, our customers can reduce their footprint and make a positive impact on the world.”

Following the ISO LCA Methodology
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has established a standardised framework for conducting life cycle assessments. In combination with life-cycle data provided by a third-party LCA research firm, the ORBIS tool uses ISO LCA methodology to model all life-cycle steps from raw material extraction, packaging manufacturing, use, and end-of-life management.
In accordance with this methodology, ORBIS follows a simple three-step process: Relevant data will be collected and entered. Based on the inputs (raw materials, energy, water, etc.), the calculator generates and visualises the relevant outputs (e.g. greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption, energy consumption and waste). An ORBIS product manager will explain and interpret the results in person or virtually.
