Our teams of designers and engineers use Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to estimate the greenhouse gas emissions attributable to your product, through all stages of its life cycle.
Like many analytical tools, the best insight gained is dependent on how well it is used. Making valid assumptions, understanding the calculations, and assessing the most relevant solutions, not only requires knowledge of the tool, but also of your device and its context of use.
A coherent environmental impact assessment extends to include factors that help us understand the broader impact of your device, such as:
- Avoidance of hazardous or toxic materials
- Design for sustainable disposal
- Sustainable manufacturing practices and logistics
Medical device development is one piece of a big puzzle. We’re ready to work with you and collaborate with others in the value and supply chain to help you make sustainable design decisions, while ensuring regulatory and quality standards compliance.
