In this blog you will discover how AI powered tool PowerEnrich provides valuable insights into LCA, EPD and PEP files and how smart scraping can help retailers and wholesalers achieve their sustainability goals.

What are LCA, EPD and PEP files?

The PowerEnrich tool from Squadra: Machine Learning Company scrapes LCA (Life Cycle Assessment), EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) and PEP (Product Environmental Profile) files. This essential data helps to measure and understand the ecological impact. They provide valuable information on processes such as raw material sourcing, transportation, consumption and waste disposal to help assess environmental impact. By smartly scraping these files, well-considered decisions and more sustainable choices can be made.

Why are these files important for sustainability?

LCA, EPD en PEP bestanden dragen op meerdere niveaus bij aan duurzaamheid. Ze stellen retailers en groothandels in staat om hun impact op het milieu te kwantificeren, trends te identificeren en gerichte verbeteringen aan te brengen. Door de gegevens in deze bestanden te analyseren kunnen bedrijven hun maatschappelijke verantwoordelijkheid aantonen en voldoen aan de groeiende vraag van consumenten naar duurzame producten.

2. What is scraping?

Web scraping is the process of using bots to extract content and data from a website. Web scraping also extracts underlying HTML codes and thus data stored in a database.
