‘While assessing and understanding the carbon footprint of a product or system is advantageous, especially in our current carbon conscious environment, focussing solely on carbon as an indicator can ignore and even increase the real and potential impacts from a broader lifecycle perspective….’

Brett Giddings
VISY Product Sustainability Manager

"I have been involved in many LCA projects in my time at Visy and am yet to find a Peer-Reviewed LCA with so many indicators at such a cost effective price….The great labelling, certification and marketing benefits (of GreenTag®) could be seen as an added bonus."

Brett Giddings
Product Sustainability Manager

"Your Ecospecifier ‘Knowledge Green’ section has been promoted to pretty near consistently the top of my resources for students (and smarter clients), especially for the valuable Setting Priorities documents, well prioritised technical guides and informative case studies."
