The Challenge

Medline, as company of highly awareness of the need to act to prevent climate change,  wanted to move forward with its calculation of Greenhouse Gas emissions resulting from the production of its products.

The Solution

CSE conducted the calculations and verification for the Carbon Footprint study. For the calculations of the Carbon Footprint, CSE performed the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of Medline’s polypropylene plastic, which included: production and transportation of the raw materials, transportation of the final product, energy consumption, packaging, waste management, and all general procedures that were needed to create the product.
