Whole of Life Cost / Triple Bottom Line Assessment

Life Cycle Assessment

Whole of Life Cost / Triple Bottom Line Assessment

Whole of Life analysis allows organisations to optimise the performance of assets across environmental, social and economic indicators. The analysis models capital and operational costs alongside environmental impacts and social risks to identify opportunities for cost-effective improvement.

It can be implemented during the design and planning process or on existing assets, products or portfolios with potential benefits including:

  • Value engineering to deliver lower costs/higher yields over a product or asset life cycle
  • Optimisation of an asset to avoid under/over-capitalising on sustainability initiatives
  • Benchmarking products and assets against each other – portfolio view
  • Providing triple bottom line transparency to inform decision-making
  • Facilitating reporting on environmental impacts and social risks
  • Identifying major supply chain risks
  • Earning points in green building and infrastructure rating tools (Green Star, LEED and IS)
