Measuring Eco-efficiency by a LCC/LCA Ratio - An Evaluation of its Applicability. A case study at ABB.

Master thesis demonstrating the significance and the field of usefulness when measuring eco-efficiency, this by performing a case study at ABB. The case study’s purpose is to put an eco-efficiency interpretation key into practice, the LCC/LCA ratio, and evaluating its applicability. The study is contributing to the existing knowledge base of environmental management and is putting the aspect of eco-efficiency interpretations in position.

The products chosen in order to evaluate the eco-efficiency are the HXR500 motor and the ACS800 frequency converter from ABB.
