We have curated and cleaned millions of data points from thousands of Life-Cycle Assessments.

Our service provides access to accurate statistics on a product's environmental impact, on a geographical level, over its entire lifecycle.

This essential data is often heavily monopolised, challenging to find, and difficult to make sense of. We make it easy and affordable for developers to create and maintain accurate prediction models.
