At times there is too much work for one Life Cycle Assessment Practitioner to handle. That is why WAP Sustainability offers outsourced LCA services.

We support LCA Practitioners in two primary ways:

We work alongside LCA practitioners to help with peer review, troubleshooting and general consulting. Our goal is to help support you in achieving your objectives and improve your efficiency.

We utilize the GaBi software platform from PE International , Open LCA, and Simapro from PRé. This allows us to be versatile and adapt to your needs.

All of our work is based on the ISO14040/44 series of international standards and relevant product category rules for Environmental Product Declarations.

We are partners with all the major program operators (ULe, NSF, SCS, ASTM etc), have Certified ACLCA Life Cycle Assessment Practicioners on staff, and have been approved by the International EPD System (EnvironDec ) as Individual and Systems EPD Verifiers.

 

Not only are their deliverables on time, projects within budget, and work products of superior quality. All those things are what you expect of any consultant. But their attitude, work ethic, and approach to delivering information is clear, accurate, and helpful.

What I appreciate most about working with WAP Sustainability is how they manage projects. They manage down to even the smallest detail. One time we had a sustainability audit for a new certification and WAP Sustainability was helping with the data management. Part of that management included picking the auditor up from the airport. They know what they are doing and they do it well.

In addition to our support services, we also take on full LCA projects where we handle the process from beginning to end.

If you are starting on your first LCA project, we jump-start the process by bringing in an experienced team of practitioners.

If you are an experienced practitioner but simply have too many projects on your plate, send some to us at WAP Sustainability and we will help you get caught up.

Our LCA Process:

  • Onsite Project Kickoff meeting to discuss the goal and scope of the project. A plant tour is recommended

  • Collection of raw material data to the disclosure level required in the PCR

  • Raw material assessment and supplier outreach

  • Collection and quality assurance of energy, water, transportation, and waste primary data

  • Development of customer use scenario(s)

  • Development of end of life scenario(s)

  • Development of LCA Model

  • Computation of the Life Cycle Impact results

  • Formal interpretation of the results

  • Completion of an ISO14040/44 compliant LCA report.

  • Submission of the LCA report for third-party review

  • Management of third-party review process through final verification.
