Business user

SimaPro Business user package is designed to enable you to easily view the environmental impact of your products, services or organization, and to compare scenarios. It combines SimaPro Share – an interactive and intuitive web-based tool – with a pre-built life cycle assessment (LCA) model. You don’t need to have expert LCA knowledge to be able to benefit from insightful LCA results. With a Business user license, you will get direct access to the expertise of seasoned LCA experts.

There are two options: an LCA practitioner can set up a model for you or you can purchase one of our ready-to-use tools, which comes with an embedded model. You can choose from the models we developed in-house, to get a tool that suits your specific needs. For example, our model for plastics, packaging, or corporate footprinting. This combination of SimaPro Share and one of our pre-built models creates the perfect tool for quick and efficient analysis of your data, allowing you to skip a big part of the learning curve and start delivering results right away.

Using this tool, product designers can choose the most environmentally friendly design option. Purchasing departments can screen suppliers for environmental impact. Marketing experts can communicate brand value to customers. And sustainability directors can use the high-level results from all these departments to build a strong business case for sustainability.
