AgBalance™ – a life cycle assessment

AgBalance™ can conduct full life cycle analysis. It enables study partners to detect and improve the sustainability performance of agricultural products in the course of their whole life.  

The results of AgBalance™ provide a scientific basis for informed, fact-based decisions on how to best improve the sustainability of any given agricultural production system which can be defined differently, e.g. as cradle-to farm-gate or cradle to retailer gate.

AgBalance™ assesses:

  • current practices and processes, identifying options for improvement
  • the contribution of farming and downward processes over the complete life cycle of products
  • impact of regulation on products as well as farming practices
  • transparent the impacts of farming practices at different levels and their relationship to issues such as biodiversity or resource consumption
