Ciba, NextLife Team up to Offer Sustainability Services
NextLife, a provider of environmental sustainability products and solutions, has announced a strategic partnership with Ciba Expert Services, an independent, knowledge-based service in product lifecycle management and sustainability engineering. This partnership provides NextLife with direct access to Ciba's renowned scientific and engineering resources, including regulatory, testing, and EHS services.
"The technical assets that Ciba Expert Services brings to NextLife are helping us set a new standard for service and innovation in the sustainability solutions arena," said NextLife President and Chief Operating Officer Lonnie Chenkin in a Feb. 26 press release. "Working with Ciba, NextLife can provide a total solution to businesses that are looking to make a credible commitment to sustainability while growing their bottom line."
The team will offer brand licensing and certification, Eco-Labeling, and marketing support. They will also offer a proprietary, comprehensive Environmental Impact Report (EIR) to businesses that want to cut costs and run more sustainable operations.
The EIR will be the foundation for NextLife's Super Life Cycle Assessment (SLCA), which examines every stage of a product's lifecycle while analyzing business infrastructure to identify inefficiencies that can decrease profitability and hinder operations. After completion of the EIR, the company recommends, installs, and monitors the latest solutions available to reduce waste, lower emissions, and cut energy costs.
