The main purpose of the DANTES project was to collect,
exchange and present information and experiences from using different tools
for environmental sustainability. This was done by looking at
existing tools and methods for environmental assessment and
their large-scale application in companies. Sustainability
tools such as Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Environmental Risk
Assessment (ERA), Life Cycle Cost (LCC) and Environmental
Product Declarations (EPD) are assessed and demonstrated by applying
them on different products
and systems in
the partner's organizations.
