In 2012, EPAGMA presented a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) on growing media constituents conducted by the independent research company, Quantis. Quantis is a leading life cycle assessment (LCA) consulting firm specialised in supporting companies to measure, understand and manage the environmental impacts of their products, services and operations.
The purpose of this study is to provide a better understanding of the environmental impacts of growing media. The results of the study helped EPAGMA to identify further actions for a more sustainable development of our business. The LCA has formed the basis for the preparation of EPAGMA’s Sustainability Roadmap.
In this regard, the Quantis study marked the beginning of a far-reaching process for increasingly integrating life-cycle thinking to all business decisions. EPAGMA members are committed to regularly assessing the improvement of the industry and communicating best practices throughout the supply chain in the context of its Sustainability Roadmap.
