We work with think step earlier PE International to carry out an Environmental LCA (Gate-to-Gate) study of our key products based on the volume and length of processes following ISO 14040, ISO 14044 and World Steel Association guidelines.

This was an industry led initiative for developing, verifying and testing a methodology for assessing product Social impact Assessment through product social life cycle assessment. We conducted a case Study as pilot project in collaboration with BMW Germany in the value chain for the Social product impact assessment of the steel ring that goes as bearing in BMW 1 series. The handbook and methodology so developed is now available in public domain for testing and is being pursued further for an ISO standardization.
