Our Cradle-to-Grave Life Cycle Sustainability Management (CtG-LCSM) Services

Polar Design Studio’s CtG-LCSM model services are different from others in the field. To start with PDS builds the baseline Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) for GHG (Scope 1, 2 and 3) and toxic emissions using generic life cycle emission factors using extensive life cycle emission factors database.  After establishing baseline LCI, PDS builds its  clients’ Cradle-to-grave, cradle-to-gate and gate-to-grave LCI baseline and reduction strategies using actual data of their facilities and their suppliers facilities. This approach provides  their product and services overall LCI foot-print as real-time and the reduction strategies are built on realistic, practical way that are integrated in to a company’s financial model. The main steps setting CtG-LCSM system for our clients are as follows:

  1. Determine the business CtG-LCSM scope boundaries and facilities
  2. Compile GHG Scope 1&2 and Eco-foot print using site specific data
  3.  Identify and list down all upstream value chain companies
  4. List down all product customers and value chain delivery companies
  5. Engage up and down stream value chain companies for CtG-LCSM
  6. Facilitate all value chain companies (80:20 rule) for compiling their GHG Scope 1&2 & Eco-footprint (EFP) data
  7. Use value chain companies data for your Scope-3 and CtG-LCSM EFP
  8. Develop CtG-LCSM based GHG (Scope-1,2,3) and EFP reduction strategy meeting 1.50C Climate Change Goal by 2030 (1.50C_CCG_2030)
  9.  Engage Industry membership bodies and governments to implement members CtG-LCSM 1.50C reduction goals working with WEF Club
  10.  Track annual reduction target achieved for CtG-LCSM club members
  11. CtG-LCSM approach will increase product price but will reduce EFP
  12. End user public financial burden shared by governments by polices:
    • Carbon Tax rebates for green product life cycle EFP reductions
    • Zero interest for green product purchase and recycling
    • Removing government incentives to existing polluting industry
  13.  This sustainability revolution will create worldwide job and business opportunities, alleviating poverty, increasing earth productivity
  14. Promoting tele-commuting and conferencing reducing travel needs
  15. Promoting local agri-growth and industry reducing shipping EFP
  16. Promoting cottage industry with reusable good (circular economy)
  17. Increasing biodiversity and reducing mining industry eco-footprint
  18. Wiping out worldwide single use economy recovering ocean pollution
  19.  Phasing out fossil fuel base economy and non-renewable economy
  20. Switching to renewable solar, wind, biogas and geothermal energies
  21. Promoting industrial ecology: waste of one raw material of another
  22. Switching from mega projects to distributive sustainable production
  23. Decline of non-sustainable trade with increase in CtG-LCSM club trade
  24. Revival of under-stress eco-systems such as mangroves, coral, wetland

Develop Scope 3 All Categories GHG

We develop Scope 3 all categories for vertical integrated and sequential facilities and support services initially on spread sheets for integration into life cycle inventory and product footprint. We also integrate financial modeling to assess climate change financial risk at different carbon cost projected scenarios for science based targets such as 1.5 degree C by 2050 and intermit targets for 2025, 2030, 2035, 2040, 2045. We also help in developing GHG reduction strategy for intermittent periods mentioned keeping in view tier level company commercial viability, competitive edge and sustainably survival. We convert spread based models into cloud based GHGMIS model for long-term use and GHG reduction tracking and carbon offset internal credits and purchasing strategy for external purchase of vintage allowance:

The existing Sustainability and Environmental management systems such as Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG), Sustainability Development Goals (SDS), EMS ISO:14001:2015, Energy Management System (ISO-50001:2018), WRI and GRI protocols will become tools for CtG-LCSM club industry, trade and commerce. Our value added integrated CtG-LCSM model services will put our clients on sustainability pathway  for eco-efficiency achieving their 1.50C Climate Change Goal by 2030.
