The Environmental Impact is the sum of consequences that events and actions have for the environment. A product's life-cycle consists of all the stages from extraction of raw materials - transportation, production, storage, use, etc. - to its final disposal. Each of them affects the environment, and combined form a product's Life-Cycle Environmental Impact. Services share products and stages, and so they have a life-cycle as well.
Nature does nothing in vain - Aristotle
The Earth always responds unpredictably and so we hear both about Global Warming and glaciations for the coming years. Let's apply the Precautionary Principle to diminish risks and damages
Our evolution in sciences, arts or medicine has been uncontrolled and derived in resource depletion, contamination from mismanaged waste, and irresponsible territorial usage, among other consequences. This is our heritage and what we leave for future generations. It's time to change things and to become proactive. Each of our actions counts!
