Specifying our voluntary standard "Type II environmental label" to design environmentally-conscious products, our company is developing and manufacturing environmentally-conscious products aiming to reduce the environmental load of products.
Revising the standard of the "Type II environmental label" in 2012, an assessment based on a further strict standard was started.
An LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) means an assessment of the load on the environment through the life of products (overall life cycle).
Life cycle of products
Models for LCA implementation and LCA for part of the products were selected in 2012.
Case examples of implementation will be increased in future to compare the LCA results for each product category and utilize it as an effective tool to reduce the environmental load.
