LCA Label

LCA Label

Yokogawa began to conduct the life cycle assessment (LCA) in 1999 in the design phase of all new products as part of efforts to minimize our products' environmental impact. Some of the results of the LCA are disclosed on our website. When LCA data is disclosed for a product, the applicable product is "LCA-labeled" in the product webpage and/or sales brochure .

Requirements for LCA Labeling

A product will be LCA-labeled if it meets all the requirements described below:

  1. Life cycle assessment has been conducted according to Yokogawa's engineering specifications.
  2. The results of life cycle assessment are disclosed on the Yokogawa website according to the company's internal rules.

Concept/Implementation of the LCA

Yokogawa has set its unique LCA standards based on JIS Q 14040 "Environmental management -- Life cycle assessment -- Principles and framework." We compare a new product with its previous product for assessment purposes. The results of the LCA of the previous product are multiplied by the "functional factor" to compare the environmental impacts based on the equivalent functionality of the new product. When the results of the LCA on the previous products clearly suggest how these products would impact the environment, we may only conduct LCA on the elements significantly affecting the environmental impact.
