Environmental Assessment

There are several standards and calculation tools for determining greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts. These tools differ slightly depending on what the emissions are to be calculated for and how the results are to be used. Some typical climate impact assessment tools are described below. Feel free to contact us if you have questions or need guidance based on your needs.

  • Life cycle assessment is a method for calculating the potential environmental impact of a product throughout its life cycle and provides a holistic picture of where the environmental impact is greatest. LCA can be used to assess the environmental impact of both products and services and looks at all environmental impacts and resource-uses at all stages, from raw material extraction to waste management (Cradle to grave). LCA is also a good tool to use in design, planning, material selection and manufacturing to compare alternatives and guide choices that are better for the environment.

    Are you at an early stage of design or product development? Do you want to easily determine the climate impact of simple material or design choices? With EDAG's tool Quick-LCA (QLCA), companies can identify the best options early in the product development process to minimize the final climate impact of the product.

    Do you want to know the environmental impact of your company's products or services and identify what measures can be implemented to reduce it? Contact us and we would be glad to help you.

  • With the Climate Data Sheet, companies can easily and cost-effectively get a unique competitive advantage while contributing to sustainable industries. EDAG offers calculations to generate the Climate Data Sheet - a document that describes the climate impact of a product in CO₂-eq, from cradle to gate.

    The calculation method responds to stricter requirements from society, legislators, and customers regarding the reporting of the climate impact of products and individual articles. Companies that can meet these requirements will have a unique competitive advantage as the demand for sustainable products increases. The method fulfils the requirements for an article's climate impact to be validated by a third party if desired. The validation is currently performed by RISE according to EN ISO/IEC 17029: 2019.

    The method is based on known material and process data and can therefore be used to report the climate impact both for existing articles in production and for future articles, which means that the Climate Data Sheet can be attached to the regular offer to the customer.

  • Producing Environmental product declarations (EPDs) is a good way to provide information on the environmental impact of products through the value chain in a transparent and standardized way. EPDs are an effective communication tool between suppliers, and in procurement and purchasing. An EPD according to ISO-14025 requires a completed life cycle analysis and depending on the product category, there might also be additional product specific requirements on how the life cycle assessment should be carried out. All environmental product declarations must be reviewed by an independent third party before publication.

    At EDAG, we can help you conduct a life cycle assessment according to the EPD applicable ISO-standard and specific product regulations.  

  • The basis for creating a climate strategy, setting targets and prioritizing measures to reduce the company's greenhouse gas emissions requires knowledge of where these emissions occur and are greatest.

    The Greenhouse Gas protocol is a standard used to calculate a company's climate impact, and can be used to calculate greenhouse gas emissions from the entire value chain.  The value chain emissions are divided into three parts, scope 1 (Upstream), 2 (Core) and 3 (Downstream). Together these provide the company's total amount of greenhouse gas emissions from all activities, and include both the direct and indirect emissions.

    EDAG can support you in inventory assessment and calculation, interpretation and guidance in choosing measures to reduce emissions.

Sustainability Reporting

One of the main pieces of EU´s sustainability puzzle is the EU green deal. As part of the EU's Green Deal, the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) enters into force on 1 January 2024, ensuring that all companies subject to the Directive disclose their sustainability efforts in a transparent and comparable way. With increased comparability between companies' sustainability efforts, the confidence of investors, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders is strengthened. For many companies, however, CSRD also brings an increased complexity in reporting compared to previous years. EDAG is there for those in need of assistance to navigate the new CSRD reporting landscape. 

  • Whether it's conducting a GAP analysis, planning the dual materiality analysis or structuring the sustainability efforts required to report in line with CSRD, EDAG has the necessary expertise. EDAG ensures that you have what it takes to report according to the new reporting requirements and directives.

  • With the implementation of CSRD, the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) has developed standards to provide a common basis for European sustainability reporting. Compliance with the standards means reporting on a wide range of ESG data, i.e. information about a company's impact on environmental, social and governance issues. The reporting requirements are numerous and can easily become complex. EDAG has the expertise to structure your ESG work and increase understanding of the new standards.

  • With the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) entering into force, the aim is to prevent carbon leakage from the EU by imposing stricter requirements on importers of goods with high greenhouse gas emissions. Understanding the new rules and dealing with the latest customs requirements can be complicated. With EDAG's help, this work can be made easier.

  • EDAG helps you with compliance and conformity with the EU taxonomy, guiding you in the classification and reporting of your company's economic activities that meet the taxonomy's guidelines for sustainable business.

Partner with us to optimize your CDP reporting process, gaining a competitive edge and enhancing your environmental stewardship initiatives. 

Circular economy

The circular economy is a system whereby materials and products are circulated and retain their value for as long as possible so that no waste is generated. This means that we need to make the most of the resources we have in circulation and decouple further economic growth from the extraction of natural resources. Therefore, circular thinking needs to come in early in design and product development and that companies need to review their business models and work with circular strategies. Contact us and to we can help you start on your circular economy journey.

  • Reducing waste, increasing recycling opportunities or optimizing resources? Whatever the case, EDAG helps you identify opportunities to implement circularity in your business, actively supporting you in breaking the linear economy.

  • To be competitive in today's transition towards lower emissions and higher resource efficiency, many companies will have to work with new strategies and business models. EDAG can help you navigate strategies and help you create a sustainable and profitable business model that suits you.

  • With many years of experience in design in the automotive industry, EDAG has good expertise in this area. With increased focus on sustainability and circular economy as well as new directives, a life cycle perspective needs to be introduced early in the design process. Using circular principles and sustainability assessment creates products with better sustainability performance and increased competitiveness in the market. At EDAG, we can help you throughout product development and evaluate early design options to create products for the future. We also have our own tool, Quick-LCA (QLCA), which can be used early in the product development process to identify the best options that minimize the final climate impact of the product.
