MINIMISING ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Recently, LMR completed a comprehensive life cycle assessment (LCA) of rose extract to develop a model that can be applied to other products. Conducting the analysis enabled LMR to fully understand all the major environmental and social impacts of the product, from cultivation through processing to end use.

LEARNING FROM A LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT

“The life cycle assessment initiative shows LMR’s commitment to evaluate present conditions to create a better future,” states Bernard Toulemonde, LMR's General Manager. With this completed, LMR now has a model for measuring each product’s total environmental performance and a standard for consistently communicating that performance, as well as working on optimizing the environmental impact of each ingredient. Bernard predicts that LMR can use the model to provide ingredients' data to customers who are increasingly asking for this type of information.
