Life Cycle Assessments
Our business is one that relies heavily on resin as a raw material
We recognize the need to balance environmental impacts with functionality and a consideration of consumer needs. We conduct life cycle assessments (LCAs) to better understand the environmental impacts of our products, processes and activities and to identify opportunities for product improvement.
In 2014, our LCA strategy enabled us to establish baseline measurements for 20 product families as manufactured in ten different facilities across the globe. Since then, we continue to conduct life cycle assessments on our products, adding to our baseline assessments and improving the impact of current products. We made history when we became the first dispensing solutions provider to achieve ISO 14025 certification, the Environmental Product Declaration, for the life cycle assessments performed on our GS and GS Affinity pumps produced in Chieti, Italy.
