Automotive Industry Example
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has been using its in–house LCA ‘Rapid Tool’ for approximately 10 years.
"The tool has supported savings of a few kgs of CO2 per vehicle through to material changes that reduce annual CO2 emissions by thousands of tonnes.
The tool enables specific engineering targets to be set for key systems within the finished product helping to drive sustainable engineering within products.
"Using the tool to identify significant CO2 reduction opportunities normally coincides with significant material cost reduction potential and the ability to compare different supplier solutions. The tool also helps us stay ahead of forthcoming legislation on life cycle assessment."
