FLEXO Magazine : July 2008
"A Life Cycle Assessment is one of the most rigorous ways to examine a business's environmental footprint," said Lisa DiGate, global business director, DuPont Packaging Graphics. "We chose to use the ISO and Peer Review processes because sustainable packaging is so critical to a healthy future for our industry as well as the environment." Life Cycle Assessment, the tool that was used to evaluate the environmental footprints, examines materials, energy con- sumption and key environmental releases. It is a formal process with specific guide- lines and phases for determining what to measure, how to collect the data, and how to conduct the impact assessment and, finally, interpret the results. The DuPont LCA includes both suppliers and customers and takes into account the raw materials, energy, waste and emissions, that occurs upstream-in this case from image carrier manufacturing, to downstream-in this case the printed packaging substrate at the end of the press. The LCAs were conducted in accordance with ISO 14040 and 14044 guidelines and Peer Reviewed by a panel of five independent experts coordinated by Five Winds International, a global consul- tancy recognized for its expertise in sustain- able development. The DuPont LCA results are approved provisionally pending final signatures from the LCA Peer Review panel.
