A Pivotal Tool
The Compass Tool has been pivotal for our use in Life Cycle Assessment projects. We are able to measure our holistic environmental impacts, assess alternative materials and clearly answer”what-if” questions that are pivotal to our customers with customers. The easy user interface enables the non-technical user to learn the tool quickly and build projects at a much faster pace. We believe the Compass tool will be pivotal for us to build our circular economy models and highly recommend this tool to anyone looking to do the same.
Sustainability Case Study
Bhoomi was selected for a packaging study led by Trayak, its sustainability consultants and in partnership with the Climate Collaborative. Since sustainability is a top priority for Bhoomi, this was an amazing opportunity as we had been working towards coming up with a 100% sugarcane-based packaging for our product. Trayak’s team was highly professional and collaborative that helped us clearly see the impact of our packaging and reach closer to our regenerative impact goals. In addition, Trayak’s work allowed us to effectively communicate our results to our customers and stakeholders. For example – This study allowed us to learn that switching to a sugarcane bio HDPE bottle will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 89.5% percentage and reduce fossil fuel consumption by 62.6%. Their analysis goes deeper into the indicators and the simple indicators provide pieces of information that are relatable as well as easily digestible for the audience. Trayak’s study was easily above and beyond our expectations!
Quickly Compare Alternatives
Working with Trayak was excellent. It’s highly likely we would have been going down a less-impactful road if we didn’t partner with Trayak on this case study! The case study with Trayak allowed Boulder Organic Foods to quickly compare our current packaging with alternatives. The simple indicators allow us to easily communicate results and recommendations with stakeholders. We’ve identified two additional configurations that this work affects positively, which are outside of our initial scope. This means when we are able to implement, we will see even greater reduction in fossil fuel consumption, water use, and greenhouse gas emissions than the case study quantified.
Webinars & Trainings
November 3, 2021 at 11 am EST
Get started developing responsible packaging with the help of Trayak’s LCA solution, EcoImpact-COMPASS. This demo will focus on using EcoImpact-COMPASS to analyze the environmental footprint of packages. Our software allows you to evaluate design alternatives early and rapidly to find the solution that best meets your packaging requirements. Take your journey one step further and use our add-on module, SCORE, to evaluate trade-offs between environmental impacts and packaging attributes.
USING LCA AND CIRCULARITY TO MAKE COMPREHENSIVE PACKAGING DECISIONS
November 3, 2021 at noon EST
A joint webinar with PAC Canada. Join us for a deep dive on how circularity is measured using the Ellen MacArthur Foundation Material Circularity Indicator (MCI) tool calculation, and what the drivers of circularity are. Trayak presenters, will walk through a circularity example and look at how Circularity and Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) combine to support comprehensive decision making, highlighting complementary methodologies.
Getting Started in EcoImpact-COMPASS
November 10, 2021 at 11 am EST
Join us for a basic training where our team will walk through setting up your COMPASS account, building your first package, and interpreting results.
