“Our recent Life Cycle Assessment of the Denali jacket has helped our product development teams validate the environmental impact reductions achieved through the use of recycled polyester and a new dyeing process which uses up to 50% less water and chemicals and 25% less energy on average versus traditional dyeing methods. Our product development teams can now utilize the learnings from the LCA and quickly evaluate future design changes.”
-James Rogers, Sustainability Manager, The North Face
“I greatly enjoyed the intro to LCA and SimaPro course taught by EARTHSHIFT. It provided me with a comprehensive understanding of an LCA along with the context and appreciation for the state of their development within industry and academia. This two day workshop provided me with a strong foundation on SimaPro through the classroom presentations and the real life examples we were able to model. I appreciated the small class environment, engaging conversations, and personal direction provided by the instructor.”
-Joaquín Serrano, Sustainability Manager, Avery Dennison
