It is the holistic perspective that matters.
Every human and environmental effect of the product is monitored during its production, utilization and disposal, including recycling. The core significance of an LCA is a holistic view of the ecological effects instead of point-based monitoring of individual aspects. The result of an eco-balance assessment is one important base for product development.
The voestalpine is dedicated to LCA and supports the establishment of lifecycle strategies, through active participation in working groups of EUROFER and the World Steel Association in the European and international network
