What is our environmental footprint and how can we most effectively reduce it? Franklin Associates, a division of ERG, specializes in life cycle research and assessment to help clients answer these questions and improve the sustainability of their products, services, and systems. We pioneered the life cycle inventory (LCI) concept over 40 years ago and have stood at the forefront of this science ever since. Our experts have conducted hundreds of life cycle studies for public and private sector organizations.

Based on this experience, we have accumulated an extensive private LCI database for North America and have contributed to the U.S. LCI Database since its inception. These public and private databases contain information on the energy and material flows into and out of the environment for commonly used materials, products, and processes. They serve as key resources as we conduct state-of-the-art life cycle research and assessments for our clients.
