Environmental Impacts Estimation
The assessment of environmental impacts is made to discover the environmental effects caused by a product, service or system.
Such impacts include for example acidification, eutrophication, ecotoxicity, global warming potential, the ozone formation in the lower atmosphere, and the use of resources or other aspects of impact.
The results of assessment can be utilized for example in the planning of new products, services and system processes or to reduce emissions or to develop the use of resources to improve the current situation.
The assessment of the environmental impacts provides information on the environmental effects of a product, service or system in a summarized form to support decision making, development or communications.
The assessment can concentrate on individual categories of environmental impact or focus more broadly on the effects of several environmental factors.
The report can be made, depending on the use, for an individual segment or focusing on the overall perspective.
