Life Cycle Analysis

LCA guided us from A to Z

To measure the environmental impact of our products and roofing systems we needed an objective method to calculate it. A dedicated team of experts calculated the exact impact of each material and production process and made extremely detailed analyses following the norm ISO 14001.

From cradle to cradle

Every aspect of the production of our products is integrated in the calculation: from the production and the transport of each raw material to the production process and the application on the roof and all the way back to the factory and the recycling process.

We measure the CO2 production, calculate the used renewable energy and the renewable resources every step of the way, as well as make an inventory of the entire life cycle of the different products.

Factor 4 and EMAS

Factor 4 is a European objective that falls within the development of an European strategy for sustainable development in line with the Kyoto protocol. It means that by 2050 the products will have to generate twice more value with 2 times less ressources.

The EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) is a management tool for companies and other organizations to evaluate, report and improve their environmental performance.
