Plastic Footprint and Plastic Reduction Strategy

EA created the foundational framework for Plastic Footprint assessments, enabling corporations to understand plastic leakage caused by their operations and determine the most impactful measures for mitigation.

Like its carbon footprint predecessor and complementary to Life Cycle Assessment methodologies, the EA plastic footprinting method allows organizations to map, measure, and predict leakage across the entire value chain. Once armed with actionable insights, targeted mitigation strategies can be implemented to eliminate critical concerns.

Building upon expertise with plastic footprint assessments, EA also supports companies with broader plastic reduction initiatives that balance mitigation of plastic waste and negative impacts, with retaining product value and quality.

Carbon Footprint and Climate Strategy

Assessing carbon footprints and transitioning operations away from unbridled emissions is now a business imperative, especially in locations with regulatory mandates requiring organizations to minimize the negative impact of their operations. At EA, we understand the significance and complexity of this process. We recognize that every organization is unique, with its own combination of operational realities, emission sources, and sustainability goals, requiring a tailored approach.


Developing a climate strategy begins with evaluating greenhouse gas emissions across an organization’s operations and value chain. This involves establishing science-based targets aligned with frameworks such as the SBTi and regulatory guidelines like the Paris Agreement. To further support organizations, EA engages stakeholders, provides education on climate science, and ensures a broad understanding to facilitate the successful implementation of actions.

Life Cycle Assessment and Ecodesign

At EA, we recognize the importance of Ecodesign in driving sustainable innovation and reducing environmental impact. Our comprehensive approach includes the evaluation of Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) to identify areas where Ecodesign can lead to significant environmental improvements.


Through our rigorous LCAs, we provide a holistic understanding of the environmental impact associated with products and processes throughout their entire life cycle. Our systematic approach considers the cradle-to-grave environmental aspects, including raw material extraction, manufacturing, distribution, use, and disposal. These LCAs are conducted with scientific rigor and incorporate relevant industry and geographical factors to meet regulatory requirements and fulfill customer demands for transparent sustainability information.


By integrating Ecodesign principles into the findings of our LCAs, we enable businesses to identify opportunities for enhancing materials, manufacturing processes, energy efficiency, waste reduction, and end-of-life considerations.

EA launched Plasteax in 2021 after recognizing that there was a significant gap in data about plastic pollution.  

The expansive Plasteax database provides global metrics and actionable information about the reality of plastics once they reach the end of their life. Users can access data at polymer and application levels, standardized for all countries in the world.

With over 20’000 datapoints already loaded and updates every month, Plasteax is regularly accessed by private, public and civil society organizations for reliable and actionable metrics on plastic pollution worldwide.

To encourage wide usage, a significant amount of Plasteax data is open source and available to all, with the full dataset available by subscription.
