ISO Conformant LCA with EcoImpact
CINCINNATI, OH – August, 2022. From the time EcoImpact was launched in 2011, Trayak has strived to create a software which can perform Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) that conform to ISO standards. From being a pioneer of quick LCA to becoming a standard for packaging LCA, Trayak has continually invested in the robustness of the methodology and the data that is used inside the software. We are proud to announce that EcoImpact conforms to ISO 14040 and 14044.
Trayak commissioned a Life Cycle Assessment expert to perform an external independent verification of the EcoImpact COMparative Packaging ASSessment (COMPASS) software system to demonstrate to the extent possible that the generation of comparative life cycle assessments by the software are technically robust and meet the requirements of the following LCA related standards:
International Organization for Standardization. (2006). Environmental management — Life cycle assessment – Principles and framework (ISO 14040:2006 Amd 1:2020).
International Organization for Standardization. (2006). Environmental management — Life cycle assessment — Requirements and guidelines (ISO 14044:2006 Amd1:2017/Amd 2:2020).
International Organization for Standardization. (2014). Environmental management — Life cycle assessment — Critical review processes and reviewer competencies: Additional requirements and guidelines to ISO 14044:2006. (ISO/TS 14071:2014).
Trayak’s customers can be confident using COMPASS for their LCA needs knowing that Trayak will continually invest in its future and its continued conformance to the relevant standards as they evolve. The additional benefit for our customers is that third-party reviewed LCAs can also be done faster and at lower costs with COMPASS.
