MY GOAL IS TO HELP ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REDUCTION
Help companies reduce the environmental impacts of their products’ life cycles is my professional goal. To that end, I have developed many models and tools, software databases, impact assessment methods and footprinting standards.
WHAT IS FOOTPRINTING
Footprinting is the art of assessing a product’s environmental impact from cradle to grave. It is the way to know the environmental performance of the products you manufacture, develop, use or sell. To have your products footprinted, you need to collect all the relevant data and find a footprinting expert to help you in this effort and connect all the dots.
WHAT IS THE VALUE OF FOOTPRINTING
The product footprint will tell you which are the hotspots, the most relevant sources of environmental impact in the different life cycle stages. You can compare the footprints of different production sites, run different configurations and see the reduction potential of improvements. Footprinting will also identify any trade-offs between production and use impacts and between environmental issues, such as water consumption and climate change. By updating the results each year, you can monitor the progress towards your sustainability goals.
WHAT I DO
In my career, I have continuously focused on combining accurate measurements and sustainable development. Developing and implementing sustainability metrics is my talent, but it only becomes fun and worthwhile if my actions help create a better world.
My areas of expertise include environmental product performance, footprinting methodology, life cycle database and software tool development, and impact assessment methodology.
