Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) Services
- This standardized methodology allows to quantify the environmental impact of the different life cycle steps of a product (manufacturing, distribution, installation, use and end of life) in accordance with various environmental indicators such as global warming, resource depletion, acidification of soils and water or energy consumption.
- The results are then communicated through an Environmental Product Declaration, compliant with the ISO 14025 standard called PEP (Product Environmental Profile). This allows customers to accurately quantify the environmental impact of their product or entire system.
The first PEPs were developed for the Energyflex® range of PV products. They were recently updated to cover Energyflex® Plus and Energyflex® Plus SL range. Nexans is the only cable manufacturer to provide an environmental declaration for its PV products.
