A standard approach to quantifying and measuring the environmental impact of products, life-cycle assessment (LCA) is critical to making sustainable products.

The conventional bottom up (BU) approach to LCA is complex, time-consuming, costly, and unable to provide the insights businesses need for sustainability.

Applying “activity-based footprinting”, modelled on Activity Based Costing (ABC), is one way of addressing the first barrier to making LCA scalable and open automation possibilities to turn it into a sustainability management tool for the enterprise.
