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

On July 5, EVEA gave two presentations at French chemistry think tank Adebiotech’s symposium “Sustainable bio-based surfactants” on the environmental implications of surfactants. The two-day symposium took place in the Parisian suburb of Romainville.

EVEA’s Agro-resources & Green chemistry director, Samuel Causse, gave both presentations on the second day. The first presentation was on Lifimge Cycle Assessment (LCA) as a methodology and how it can be used as a decision-making tool in the development of environmental, social and industrial products and services. The second was on the application of LCA to different surfactants (petrochemical, green chemistry and biotechnical) and how to improve environmental performance for each kind of surfactant. The presentations were both followed by lots of interaction with the audience; audience members and other presenters alike had several questions on EVEA’s presentations and on the environmental evaluation sector in general.

Other subjects covered during the symposium included international regulations for chemical substances containing surfactants, surfactants’ implications in agro-chemistry and public water sources, and others. By using cases from our own work at EVEA, we were able to contribute an environmental and social perspective to one of the larger conversations at the symposium on chemical use, and particularly surfactants, in consumer products.

Special thanks to Adebiotech’s Sylvio Bengio, Givaudan’s Alexis Rannou and SEPPIC’s Sébastien Duprat de Paule for inviting EVEA and facilitating our presence!
