Lubriscore® a self-scoring system for eco-designed products
In 2020, CONDAT established the innovative Lubriscore® system. CONDAT’s Industrial Market Manager Franck Dufresne shared the following information, saying that Lubriscore® is a self-scoring system that transparently informs customers about the lifecycle and eco-friendliness of the products:
“Lubriscore® is a self-scoring system that weighs the product properties based on life cycle criteria: raw materials and design, production, packaging, transportation, usage and end of life. This rating includes impacts on both people and the environment. The evaluation based on responses to approximately 20 questions objectively and transparently reveals the ecological design level of CONDAT products. Moreover, similar to ECOLABEL certified products, when a product complies with a label or certification, it receives higher scores in the evaluation. Customers using industrial oil with the Lubriscore® logo become informed about its impact on human health and environment.”
