5. Use of science based tools, such as LCA, to select the better impact option in terms of economic, social and environmental impacts.
Using the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) tool is essential for properly assessing the impacts caused by the manufacture, transportation, use and disposal of a product. We believe that knowing the entire life cycle of a product is today one of the most effective ways to support more conscientious consumption choices. In the search for solutions for an increasingly sustainable life, LCA studies have provided crucial information to support decision-making and our strategic planning.
LCA Studies: We have carried out more than 70 LCA studies since 2005, which have generated valuable information for companies and consumers. The studies already completed include those on pallets, sacks, paint bucket packaging, packaging for chocolate powdered drink mixes, disposable cups, surgical kits, etc. See the studies available at: https://www.braskem.com.br/acv-studies.
