Sustainability Assessment (SA) is a complex appraisal method. It is conducted for supporting decision-making and policy in a broad environmental, economic and social context, and transcends a purely technical/scientific evaluation.

Integrating sustainability and productivity

- Assess your products and processes on economic, ecological and social criteria!

- Model production processes and material and energy flows or carbon footprints!

- Visualize processes and Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) with illustrative diagrams.

- Optimize costs, resource consumption and your environmental performance!

You’ll gain a comprehensive systems understanding for life cycle assessment with intuitive graphical modeling, while the use of a hierarchical modeling structure helps you to keep on top of even the most complex product systems.

Use your own combination of impact categories, including support of various LCIA methods. Then, calculate environmental product declarations (EPDs) as well as environmental footprints for products (PEFs) and organizations (OEFs).

Adding data for process chains has never been easier! One mouse click displays all unit and result processes capable of “delivering” the materials in question – just select the right one (expand function).

Visualize your results as a Sankey diagram. It shows you and your colleagues at one glance where the system’s biggest material and energy demands are and which materials and processes make the largest contribution to a particular impact category.

Planning to publish your LCA report? Umberto NXT LCA will give you optimal support for the critical review process. All ecoinvent data sets used in the original LCA are secured by a lock symbol, thus clearly indicating their “original" status. Of course, you can modify all data sets - in this case the symbol is displayed as an open lock.

ECOINVENT is the world's leading Life Cycle Inventory database which delivers both in terms of transparency and consistency. Click here to learn more

The versions Umberto NXT LCA and Umberto NXT Universal come bundled with the ecoinvent database. If you require data sets beyond those that the ecoinvent database offers you now have the opportunity to add GaBi extensions. The 17 GaBi databases encompass approximately extra 5,000 data sets.

Quick and easy calculation of product life cycle models. Product-related CO2 footprints according to PAS 2050, GHG Protocol, and in the future ISO 14067. CO2 footprints for a location or company (Corporate Carbon Footprint)

Among others there can be found data sets for the sectors: Agriculture, Chemicals, Metals, Drinks, Building materials, Plastic, Food and Textiles

Keywords: Material Flows, Energy Flows, Carbon Footprint and Life Cycle Assessment Software with Custom Software Development Support and Process Systems Improvement
