3D Environmental Assessment

Knowledge about the vulnerability of the environment and human wellbeing has spread to all corners of the globe. Purchasing decisions are increasingly being made based on the responsibility and environmental friendliness of products.  

3D environmental assessment is meant for you if you want to be valued by customers and investors for responsible and environmentally friendly operations. You also want to be a global trendsetter in your own field, manage financial risks and create new opportunities for your business.   

A 3D environmental assessment assists you to understand the environmental impacts of your products. It also helps you to reduce detrimental environmental impacts the products may have and to design more environmentally friendly products. 


Case study

With the help of a design-phase 3D environmental assessment on the tablet stand used in the ESCflow food waste service, we achieved the following:  58% reduction in carbon footprint and 47% reduction in production costs.

What is a 3D environmental assessment?  

A 3D environmental assessment generates information about the life-cycle environmental impacts of a product and provides means to reduce these impacts. The service is applicable to both ready products and those under development. It guides decision making and often achieves the best and most innovative solutions when the service is integrated in the design process of a product. 

In calculating a product’s environmental load, we make use of the product’s 3D and environmental impact data. Four environmental impact factors are calculated and evaluated: carbon footprint, emissions that cause acidification, emissions that cause water system eutrophication, and energy consumption. On a case-by-case basis, material and production cost calculations can also be made. This generates more precise information about the relation between cost and environmental impacts. 

Why is a 3D environmental assessment important?  

  • Customers want responsible and environmentally friendly products.
  • Investing in ecologically more sustainable products is a strategy that leads to success measured in the esteem it generates for the business from customers and financial results.  
  • Eases the implementation of responsible business goals in the form of practical solutions.  
  • Identifies a product’s most critical and detrimental environmental impacts as well as solutions to mitigate these impacts.  
  • When integrated with design processes it results in successful product solutions.  Helps to create a fresh perspective of a product and to generate new product innovations. 
  • Often guides design and development to solutions where material efficiency and material selections reduce product costs and increase price competitiveness.  
  • It is fast to implement and easy to understand. Communicate efficiently with the help of clear reports, graphical interfaces and illustrative materials. 
  • Reduces the harmful environmental impacts of products.
