Railtech wanted to measure life cycle analysis of its flagship product: rail clip. It turned to ekodev, the sustainability consulting firm.
Railtech headed towards sustainability thanks to eco-design. It uses renewable resources, respects their renewal rate during exploitation and encourages waste repurposing, reuse, repair and recycle as well as optimised transport. ekodev’s analysis proved the effectiveness of its initiatives to protect the environment. Then, Railtech also decided to offset its CO2 emissions through reforestation programmes. It really sets them apart and the company can be proud to let its customers know.
ekodev measured the rail clip’s carbon footprint taking its whole life cycle into account. Railtech was convinced by the results and repeated the approach on another clipping system.
