Why choose COMPASS?
The Pioneering Life Cycle Assessment Solution
COMPASS was developed by the Sustainable Packaging Coalition through a collaborative process that was informed by an industry needs assessment, input from packaging experts, LCA experts, academia, and the U.S. EPA. COMPASS data is verified by third party and prominent brand owner companies.
COMPASS enables the design process by providing quick ‘what-if’ scenarios and side by side comparisons of packaging alternatives enabling you to incorporate environmental feedback into your package development. The assessment produces life cycle impact data for key environmental metrics such as greenhouse gas emissions and fossil fuel consumption. The life cycle approach assesses environmental impacts associated with all materials and processes used to bring packaging to market while allowing decision makers to incorporate environmental parameters alongside economic factors.
The leading life cycle assessment solution is now part of a broader platform that empowers companies to operationalize product and corporate sustainability goals. The EcoImpact platform enables you to mainstream your sustainability strategy by enhancing and aligning your operations.
