Third Party Review
Third Party Review
Ag & Food Industry
LEIF provided a critical review of a comparative life cycle assessment (LCA) of the new Impossible Foods plant-based sausage product against traditional pork-based sausage. Across global warming potential, water depletion, eutrophication, and land occupation impact categories, our detailed review of methods and assumptions used to estimate life cycle impacts ensured comparative assertions were accurate and system boundaries and assumptions were consistent, in alignment with the International Standards Organization 14044, and scientifically and technically valid.
The results of the study show Impossible Sausage resulting in substantially lower potential environmental impacts across the investigated impact categories compared to pork-based sausage products on average. Impossible Foods can use these results as justification for accessing green investments and environmentally conscious consumer markets.
Life Cycle Assessment
SUSTAINABLE? LET US PROVE IT.
THINK YOUR PRODUCT IS
LEIF's Life Cycle Assessment services provide credible, detailed, and comprehensive insights into the environmental impacts of your products, helping you understand hotspots, market environmental preferability, and identify opportunities for reducing impacts to help prioritize sustainability investments.
Our rigorous data collection, analytical methods, and model designs maximize our ability to maintain and update impact assessments overtime as new scientific advances, data, and production methods emerge.
Scope 3 Analysis
LEIF provided an award winning analysis of Scope 3 supplier GHG impacts for Microsoft cloud storage as part of an effort to achieve a 55% reduction in emissions by 2030. Leveraging cutting-edge hybridized LCA methods, we combine detailed parameterized process LCA for hotspots with advanced environmentally-extended input output analysis that comprehensively captures impacts from the broader supply chain. We then integrate primary data from suppliers to deliver high resolution, spatially explicit, contextualized estimates of current and projected GHG emissions. We then identified critical impact hotspots to help target and prioritize in-house mitigation efforts and supplier guidance to manage upstream impacts.
MAXIMIZING YOUR RETURN ON
LEIF employs advanced data modeling techniques to thoroughly examine all possible mitigation scenarios, enabling your company to streamline complex decision-making processes into a simple matter of prioritization. Whether you have dozens or even billions of potential scenario permutations to choose from, our accurate analyses help you make data-driven decisions.
Mitigation Scenario Analysis
DMI from the US Dairy Industry Association contracted LEIF to build a life cycle assessment tool to calculate regional GHG emissions from the dairy industry and simulate potential mitigation scenarios. The tool allows DMI to estimate emissions of both feed production and consumption, across 12 dairy production regions of the US. The tool allows users to examine alternative production scenarios, enabling adjustment of emission estimates over time for tracking and reporting progress towards goals, as well as examining potential mitigation pathways to achieve net neutrality, such as how changes in diet affects the downstream implications on enteric fermentation, manure methane and nitrous oxide emissions.
