"At Steelcase, we have been using SimaPro since we started to perform LCAs, about ten years ago. We use SimaPro both to support our eco-design strategy and to create our Environmental Products Declarations (EPDs). Especially both its robustness, its flexibility and the support provided by the developer, PRé Sustainability, are the reasons why SimaPro is the best option for us. We have never been disappointed."
