    What are streamlined LCAs?

    At bAwear, we understand that businesses need practical and scalable solutions to assess their environmental impact. Our streamlined LCA approach respects the essential aspects of a traditional LCA while offering the speed and efficiency that companies need. By focusing on key elements, we can provide impact calculations that offer valuable insights into environmental hotspots within a supply chain. Our approach enables companies to assess the impact of multiple products, allowing for a more comprehensive view of their sustainability landscape. This broader perspective helps businesses make informed decisions and take meaningful action to reduce their environmental footprint.

    What is the methodology used by bAwear?

    The bAwear Calculator uses the ReCiPe 2016 midpoint (Hierarchist) impact assessment methods. The reported environmental impact indicators are ‘Climate change’ (referred to as ‘Global warming’ in this tool),  Fossil Resource Scarcity (referred to as ‘Energy use’ in this tool), and ‘Water use.’ Climate change quantifies the environmental consequences of greenhouse gas emissions such as carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide, contributing to global warming and its associated effects on ecosystems, climate, and human health. Fossil Resource Scarcity indicates the amount of non-renewable fossil resources used, directly (use of fuels for drying and steam generation) and indirectly (conventional electricity production). Water use quantifies the amount of water consumed or withdrawn throughout fiber production, product- or process-related activities and during use (care processes).

    What can I do with the results of my calculations?

    The reported data can be used for internal understanding and improvement of product-level environmental impacts and process efficiencies.

    How does a streamlined LCA work?

    Overall, streamlined LCAs aim to provide a rapid and cost-effective way to assess the environmental impacts of products or systems while still maintaining a reasonable level of accuracy and reliability. By simplifying data collection, modelling, and analysis techniques, they make LCA more accessible to a broader range of users and applications. However, it's important to recognize that the level of detail and accuracy achieved in a streamlined LCA may not be sufficient for all purposes, and careful consideration should be given to the appropriateness of the approach for a given application.

    Are streamlined LCAs reliable?

    Overall, while streamlined LCAs can provide valuable insights and facilitate decision-making, their reliability hinges on careful consideration of scope, data quality, methodological rigor, and validation processes. It's essential to assess the suitability of a streamlined LCA approach for a specific application and to interpret the results with an understanding of its limitations and uncertainties.

    Are the calculations PEF-CR compliant?

    The Product Environmental Footprint Category Rules (PEF-CR) are currently under construction and not formalized, therefore there is no solution which can be PEF-CR compliant.

    Why does bAwear not calculate chemical toxicity?

    In the textile industry, chemicals are commonly used to enhance the functionality and appearance of textiles, such as by adding colour. However, the specific chemical compositions used are often kept as trade secrets by companies. Additionally, these
