Our GECA LCA Suite includes:
🍃 Environmentally Innovative Products Standard
The Environmentally Innovative Products Standard (EIP) allows products and services to obtain the GECA Ecolabel through a Life Cycle Analysis pathway. An LCA is conducted and compared to a benchmark, demonstrating the significant sustainability savings the ecolabelled product offers over the market average. This provides assurance for specifiers and consumers that the product far exceeds others in its category. This label is for products and services at best practice level in sustainability across social, environmental and health criteria whilst also providing detailed technical information for the manufacturer to use as a tool for continual improvement.
🍃 GECA LCA✔
The GECA LCA✔ is for products and services making progress on their sustainability journey and organisations wanting more information about the improvements that can be made. Products and services that obtain a benchmarked LCA but do not meet the requirements of the EIP, may be eligible for a GECA LCA✔.
🍃 Standard LCA
A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is available to those products and services which do not meet the requirements of the GECA LCA✔ or EIP.
🍃 Environmental Product Declaration
All of the above offerings can also obtain an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) earning points in schemes such as Green Star, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA).
