Our Trusted Corporate Sustainability Partners
Working with the Best People & Tools to Deliver the Best Results
LCA Resource is committed to providing as much value as possible in every carbon footprint, climate risk assessment, and life cycle assessment (LCA) we perform. We carefully select partners, software, and tools that enable us to expand and deepen the scope of how environmental, social, and governance (ESG) data can be used.
Get to know a few of our longest-standing sustainability consulting partners below.
Strategic Sustainability Consulting
Strategic Sustainability Consulting (SSC) has been one of our trusted partners for over a decade. Founded in 2005, they are experts in corporate social responsibility, ethical investing, and organizational accountability systems. SSC knows how to help clients create and act on their ESG strategy.
Specifically, SSC specializes in helping companies that are big enough to want a strategic approach to sustainability but don’t necessarily have the staff, budget, or expertise to do it all themselves. Their ESG consulting services include water footprinting, green communications audits, and carbon disclosure project (CDP) reports.
LCA Resource combines powers with SSC to help clients understand the complexities of ESG issues, collect and translate crucial data, and eventually set them up to manage their sustainability initiatives in-house.
LCA Resource has long partnered with ifu Hamburg, the Institute for Environmental IT and part of iPoint-systems, to enhance our sustainability consulting services. ifu Hamburg has offered consulting and innovative software for companies that want to optimize their products and processes through sustainability and resource savings since 1992. Their vision is to enable sustainable production for every company.
ifu Hamburg’s Umberto LCA Software is one of the world’s leading solutions for LCAs. Umberto equips us to provide you with:
Fully transparent LCA modeling and reporting
Fast and reliable analyses of your environmental impacts
Identification of ecological hotspots and data-backed improvement recommendations
Integrated cost accounting to create eco-efficient products
GeSI TCFD Framework & Toolkit
Another crucial tool we use in our sustainability consulting is the Climate Change Risk Assessment powered by the GeSI TCFD Toolkit. GeSI’s Climate Scenario Analysis Framework helps companies align with the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). This guidance supports our climate risk assessments for clients, helping them make informed decisions and work toward a low carbon transition.
Next, LCA Resource can create transparent, meaningful reports clients can share with investors. These disclosures forecast the financial impacts of climate change opportunities.
The Framework is based on the climate-related scenario process recommended by the TCFD. It outlines a three-year roadmap so that processes become part of a company’s risk management, strategic planning, and disclosure procedures.
