Considering the lifecycle aspect

"We are a company that provides specialist welders for high pressure applications, such as cooling towers. Thus, we provide labor to sites only and we only purchase consumables like welding rods and hire welding packs.

I am trying to consider the lifecycle aspect but do not really know where to start. I would appreciate any help in this”

Answer:

I would think of your service as a process with its own lifecycle:

You purchase consumables – do you have environmental considerations when deciding to whom to buy?
Your welders have to move to customers locations – do you any environmental considerations about that transport?
Your welders perform their work and generate some kind of waste - do you any environmental considerations about how to perform and how to handle wastes?

The following material will provide you information about considering lifecycle aspects:
