Designers often work under time pressure, and cannot be expected to be environmental experts. With ECO-it, designers can work around sustainability considerations without needing detailed environmental knowledge.

Why choose ECO-it?

A quick screening tool

You can quickly create a product design model, including life cycle information, in a few minutes. ECO-it calculates the environmental load and shows which parts of the product’s life cycle contribute most. With this information, your company’s designers can focus their creativity on improving the environmental performance of their designs.

Scoring system database

ECO-it contains a database with over 500 ReCiPe environmental impact scores and carbon footprint (CO2) scores for commonly used materials such as metals, plastics, paper, board and glass, as well as processes such as production, transport, energy and waste treatment. These scores work as predefined building blocks to model the life cycle of your products.

Add your own data

You can include your company’s own scoring system or include rare materials that are commonly used in your company. With the free ECO-edit tool you can create a company-specific database or change the existing database to fine-tune the scoring systems. You can use SimaPro LCA software to calculate the scores you want to enter into the ECO-it database.

ECO-it was created by PRé Sustainability, the developer of SimaPro and various other tools. You can contact the developer for information or a trial.

"We have been using SimaPro for over a decade now. Currently as a server application, which is much more convenient when you have several users. We often need to go deep into the inventory to see where specific impacts come from, with SimaPro this is possible. Also working with parameters makes SimaPro extra valuable."
