Promoted by the pEuropean programe for the protection of the environment LIFE+, the purpose of the application is to ensure the competitiveness of enterprises, especially in the fields of viticulture and horticulture, promoting the sustainability of the resources used. The methodology of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) integrates the environment in economic activity and promotes a friendly production environment, and its development aid to obtaining consumer ecolabels which guarantee the product’s environmental conditions.
