Life Cycle Analysis (LCA)

LCA provides an effective method for assessing the environmental impacts of a product, a service or a process. LCA goes beyond the Carbon Footprint since it allows for the analysis of multiple impacts. This analysis is used to evaluate the impact on the environment of a product or service throughout its life cycle, that is, from the moment it is manufactured to the moment it is recycled.


Protecting the environment means understanding our products' full-cycle, which helps us to focus on areas of improvement so we can significantly reduce our impact on the environment. We routinely adopt Eco-Design and Eco-Innovation principles which extend to include a sustainable and responsible approach to our procurement policies and how we manage, measure and reduce our carbon emissions. 

Since sustainable development involves identifying the solution that offers the highest environment performance combined with the best value for money, PAM has pioneered and endorsed a tool for quantifying the life cycle cost of a pipeline. Right from the drawing board stage of any project, PAM provides stakeholders and interested parties with best-in-class solutions aimed at improving the performance of the networks to be laid and facilitating their installation, while streamlining costs throughout the life cycle. The results of the LCA are presented in a Type 3 Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) independently verified by the BRE in accordance with the requirements of EN 15804:2012+A1:2013
