The Numbers Don’t Lie –Kavalan’s Official Green Victory Over PVC Banner

The results are in – it is with great pride that TAYA can announce it is the first company in the world to successfully complete Life Cycle Analysis (LCAs) on an entire range of PVC-Free banner materials. On behalf of Taya, SGS (formerly Société Générale de Surveillance), one of the world’s most revered inspection and validation services, has recently completed LCA processes on the entire KAVALAN range. The results validate exactly what we already knew – Kavalan is the environmentally superior alternative to traditional PVC banner. From its significantly lower carbon footprint and lower water consumption, to its amazing non-toxic biodegradable film, Kavalan is light years ahead of PVC banner, and we have the numbers to prove it!

The certified LCA process forms part of the ISO 14000 series of internationally recognised standards for environmental management. It analyses the environmental impact of a product from cradle to grave and combines historical data, test results and scientific measurements to produce numerical analysis for various environmental impacts. These impact categories include global warming, pollution, biodiversity decline, algae growth, and water consumption, among others. The LCA is the perfect tool for providing direct environmental comparisons between products and allowing customers to make purchasing decisions based on outstanding quality and environmental impact. 
To assess these impacts the LCA process looks at the 3 stages of a product’s life:

•         Upstream activities such as raw material extraction, production and packaging
•         Core activities including transportation, energy and water usage, and production
•         Downstream end of life activities, include waste management and disposal
All these processes have an impact on the environment, and numerical evaluation provided by the LCA shows we can no longer hide behind subjective assumptions or so called professional opinions - the numbers don’t lie!
It’s important to realise that across the globe many individuals, environmental bodies and institutions are having a growing influence on governments to meet a number of environmental goals through a variety of schemes which use analysis data provided by the LCA process, among others. Indeed, important environmental information, such as CO2 and water footprints, are increasingly being used to hold governments to account by forcing them to set limits and targets for a country’s emissions and consumption. Challenging decisions are ahead as the world works towards these environmental objectives – however, an easy eco choice is right in front of us – going PVC-free with Kavalan!
