Assessment tools

Environmental assessment is a systematic process designed to identify, analyze and evaluate the environmental effects of a product or an activity. The aim of the process is to identify any foreseeable adverse impacts throughout the life cycle of a product. Environmental Assessment allows effective integration of environmental considerations and public concerns into decision-making.

The environmental assessment tools and methods demonstrated and assessed in the DANTES project are divided into: Life Cycle Assessment, Environmental Risk Assessment, Life Cycle Cost and Eco-efficiency.
