ORTA is determined to achieve a brighter, more sustainable and simulating future.
For this purpose, we’ve adopted LCA, a tool used to quantify the environmental performance of a product taking the complete life cycle into account (from raw material production to final disposal) defined by ISO 14040/44 standards.
As Orta, we partnered with SimaPro for our LCA Project which helps us apply it effectively empowering solid decision-making for the better, and improving the positive impact.
SimaPro was developed with an aim to make sustainability efforts measurable, embed sustainability to daily operations, and turn sustainability initiatives into a competitive advantage.
The new system we've adopted helps us analyze the life cycle of denim production in a transparent & systematic way and to identify hot spots:
- Carbon footprint,
- Water footprint,
- Product design & eco-design,
- Environmental Product Declarations (EPD),
- Determination of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
