How Pickler calculates product environmental footprints



February 22, 2024

Key insights

The Pickler methodology is a robust approach that ensures the integrity and reliability of data used in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and in line with the latest Green Claim Directive. Data from suppliers, such as material quantities, are multiplied by corresponding footprints from the life cycle inventory (LCI) database, IDEMAT, which contains verified LCAs/EPDs. When specific EPD data is available, it is used for corresponding life cycle stages.
