A Product Designer can quickly calculate the environmental impact of the product they are designing using EcoDesigner to perform Life Cycle Analysis (LCA).

As an assembly or part is being designed, the designer can easily evaluate different design variations, and scenarios for their environmental impact. The design variations could include choice of material, manufacturing process or even the impact of buying parts and transporting it from different sources/locations. Designers can include cost of these design options into this analysis.

EcoDesigner uses well known impact assessment methods, indicators and life cycle inventory data that are recognized all round the world.


  • Easy to Use: Perform sustainability analysis directly in the designers work space. 
  • Flexible: Choose from a range of well-known and accepted impact assessment methods and indicators that are most relevant to your industry, geography and product.
  • Extensible: Incorporate your proprietary materials and environmental assessment data.
  • Collaborate: Perform analysis that can be leveraged and built upon by your internal sustainability experts or external consultants to create Environmental Product Declarations (EPD).
