The aim of the project is to simplify the handling of life cycle assessments for ThyssenKrupp Elevator and thus create the prerequisites for systematically integrating life cycle analyses into the research and development of all new products and continuously minimizing the environmental impact of all products.
As part of the "Sustainable Efficiency" program, ThyssenKrupp Elevator, in cooperation with TU Berlin, therefore wants to develop a simplified life cycle assessment model that enables a rapid assessment of relevant environmental influences. This simplified model is based on a very detailed life cycle assessment prepared for current ThyssenKrupp Elevator product lines. A standard and software product are now being developed to integrate the simplified LCA into product development.
