iPoint becomes ECO Platform member

iPoint’s MFA & LCA software enters the construction sector

We are proud to announce that iPoint-systems has joined the international non-profit association ECO Platform as a member. ECO Platform aims for mainstreaming life cycle assessments (LCA) for buildings and infrastructure projects by provision of reliable product data in an affordable and effective way. With our LCA tool Umberto and iPoint Product Sustainability, iPoint is an important addition to the ECO Platform.

A main objective of the platform is to promote and contribute to sustainable development, including a low-carbon economy and resource efficiency in the construction sector, by coordinating the development and provision of credible and scientifically correct data from products. The association is an umbrella organization for EPD (Environmental Product Declarations) program operators but involves other relevant stakeholder groups, e.g., LCA practitioners and tool providers – like iPoint. With the following software solutions for MFA (material flow analysis) & LCA (life cycle assessment), iPoint will extend the ECO Platform portfolio:

  • iPoint Product Sustainability
    With iPoint Product Sustainability – the new web-based generation of life cycle assessment software – companies can analyze the environmental impact of their products in less time while saving resources. Learn more here.
  • Eco-Efficiency Software Umberto

iPoint's representative at ECO Platform is Martina Prox, Director Sustainability Strategy at iPoint. Asked for the reasons for joining ECO Platform, Martina states: “Leveraging digitalization for sustainable change is iPoint’s purpose – we see ECO Platform in a leading role bringing actors within the life cycle community together to agree on standardized and harmonized approaches for the exchange of life cycle information in machine readable formats across the supply chain. Only with fully digitized life cycles production systems across all industries will master the transformation of our economy ahead of us towards a truly digital sustainable circular economy.”

“The construction sector is a key player in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals, especially SDG 11, ‘Sustainable cities and human settlements’,” states Joerg Walden, CEO and founder of iPoint-systems. “We are looking forward to supporting ECO Platform with iPoint’s software solutions in their overall goal to establish an open international digital data network for building and construction LCA data.”
