A highly configurable and interoperable web solution to compute the environmental impact of products, companies and industries


Companies generally don’t know what are their direct and indirect impacts on the environment. Such information is becoming strategic for companies : they are looking for solutions to identify priorities for action, prevent risks by anticipating influence of legislation, communicate their effectiveness and compare with competitors. 

Green-e 2.0 is a CTI project between ecointesys - life-cycle systems, a Swiss company leader in the assessment of environmental performances and the HES-SO // Wallis in Sierre. This CTI project consists in developing and commercializing Green-e 2.0, a web-based configurable and interoperable software solution able to quantify the environmental performance of companies and products using a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) approach (ISO 14'040 - 44), producing clear and understandable environmental performance reports. Green-e 2.0 will bring innovations at different levels: 

  • Web 2.0 interface using novel and advanced technologies such as SilverLight, Ajax or Xforms to render an intuitive interface that is automatically adapted according to the environmental computation
  • Configurable computation of environmental metrics such as carbon dioxide footprint, primary energy consumption, impact on human health and other metrics using innovating software architectures based on extensible markup languages (XML)
  • Connection to central data systems of enterprises to dynamically perform environmental analysis.
