Eco-design: evaluating, improving, accompanying

Are you improving your products or services, or developing new offers? Think "Life Cycle".
EVEA will accompany you: we use our experience to deliver solutions adapted to your requirements, whether they are operationally oriented or strategic.

Evaluate and improve your products

We carry out environmental assessments with methods and tools adapted to the objectives. This is the first step towards success! Our team provides opportunities for improvement and advice: benchmarks, creativity, eco-design ...

Accompany your projects

We support you during the eco-design of your products and services
- At what point in the project should you integrate environmental thinking? Who and how? - Formalize and deploy

LCA, Life Cycle Assessment

Through several hundred missions our team has developed approaches adapted to each application of LCA:
- product and service design - innovative projects, emerging technologies - investment projects
- evaluation of sectors, circular economy
- public policies
We are also working to extend the scope of the LCA to specific issues:
- Biodiversity
- Externalities, monetarisation of environmental impacts
- Social Impacts by the Social LCA Method
See also our LCA-based tools for deploying LCA: decision support in design, strategy evaluation, B to B communication, sharing and deployment of LCA through databases and ad hoc tools.

Environmental Product Declarations (FDES, PEP, EPD ...)

EVEA aims to be one of the leaders in the production of type III environmental declarations, better known as EPDs or FDES (construction and decoration products) or PEP (electrical and electronic products).

With hundreds of these declarations produced since 2007, and several dozen companies and unions trained in the use of SimaPro and Ev-DEC tools, EVEA aims to maximize the transfer of skills and make its customers autonomous in order to meet regulatory expectations, as well as to apply eco-design to their product development.

We also contribute to methodological work within a community of experts and standardization bodies.

The EVEA team includes verifiers certified by INIES for FDES and by PEP ecopassport© for PEPs.

Environmental Product Labelling

Since 2008, EVEA has been involved in the environmental labeling of consumer products. We have accompanied many companies during the experimental phase in France and have been administrator of the IMPACTS ® database, official database for the French environmental labeling program, developed by ADEME


Social performance of products and jobs

We know how to evaluate the socio-economic impacts of a product offering, an activity or a professional stream by quantifying the direct and indirect jobs that are preserved. This evaluation of the territorial economic footprint is based on the method of effects which is situated in the perspective of the work of Léontieff's national accounts. The effects on the territory's economy are quantified by this meso-economic method based on data specific to the object of study (accounting data and human resources) and statistical data (INSEE, Eurostat).

Territorial economic footprint

We know how to evaluate the direct and indirect jobs generated by a product offering, an activity or a professional track. This territorial economic footprint carries out the coupling of company data, sectoral data and territorial statistics.

Climate Footprint

We support your Climate strategy: from the BEGES regulation to detailed carbon footprinting, we provide solutions adapted to your ambitions.

Biodiversity Footprint

The biodiversity footprint is another long-term issue for companies. Our know-how in terms of biodiversity footprint of products and services brings real added value to act and communicate.

Responsible Communication

You want to communicate the environmental performance of your products. In terms of responsible communication there are guides, references, examples to follow ... Our approach makes it possible to construct a sincere, pertinent, exact and verifiable argument. It is all about reassurance and increasing your visibility.


Our recommendations are guided by knowledge of the environmental characteristics of the products and our understanding of customer expectations. We know how to specify your expectations and contribute in a suitable way to your communication project

EVEA’s Director of Agro-Resources and Green Chemistry, Samuel Causse, participated in a round table discussion at a seminar organized by France’s environmental agency, ADEME, on January 11th. The seminar, called « Agribalyse », focused on a program bearing the same name developed by ADEME for environmental evaluation of agricultural products in France. ADEME developed Agribalyse 10 years ago and the goal of this seminar was to evaluate the program on a global level since its creation as well as to improve the program for future use.

The seminar served in part as a platform for environmental professionals to discuss data development processes, methodologies to calculate environmental impact, and current use of Agribalyse by businesses. The seminar concluded by a conversation on future development of the program to best address the varying needs of both the private and public sectors.

During the round table discussion, Samuel had the chance to present some of EVEA’s work in eco-design and responsible communication in the agricultural and agro-food sectors.

The round table was organized by ADEME’s Jérôme Mousset and Vincent Colomb. Full list of round table participants: An De Schryver, Sandrine Espagnol, Chantal Gascuel, Samuel Causse.

On January 15, EVEA project manager Sophie Laroche presented a new method of flow analysis for secondary materials (MFA) in the building sector at the Alliance HQE-GBC’s Circular Economy Conference. The conference took place in Paris’s 16th arrondissement.

EVEA’s building department in Nantes collaborated on the project with Cerqual, the certification branch of the French nonprofit organization in charge of housing quality.

The MFA method, which was designed to support the increased application of a circular economy in the building sector, uses FDES and PEP data from INIES (France’s national database containing information on environmental and sanitary declarations for a range of products in the building sector) and data from various building LCAs. This is the first MFA method in the sector that makes significant use of these data sources.

The Alliance HQE-GBC has since started accepting entries for the first applied use of this MFA method: a series of tests evaluating the environmental impact of various kinds of buildings. Sign your building up before March 01: HQE Circular Economy Performance.

Conference organizers included the Minister of Ecological and Inclusive Transition, the Minister of Territorial Cohesion and Relations with Local Authorities, OREE, Certivéa, Cycle Up, and Institut National de l'Économie Circulaire (INEC).
