Life-cycle analysis is a methodology for examining environmental impacts associated with all stages of a commercial product’s, processes, or service’s life cycle. This give the opportunity to study the alternatives and try to reduce this pressure on the environment. For example, in the case of a manufactured product, environmental consequences are examined from the extraction and processing of raw materials, through manufacturing, distribution, and use of the product, to the recycling or final disposal f the materials that make it up.
When conducting a life cycle analysis, the most important thing is to learn the right reflexes to become responsible consumers, more attentive consumers who consider both ethical, environmental and economic criteria. Indeed, thanks to an organization like Second Cycle, a company can realize the life cycle analysis of a product that it manufactures or a service that it proposes to its customers. This allows it to identify the stages of the life cycle of a product or a service that have an influence on the environment, as well as the changes that can be made. The company thus considers all aspects that can intervene throughout the life cycle of its product, starting with its creation. This method is called eco-design, eco-design or sustainable design.
