Tools for Environment

Who we are


TOOLS for Environment (Tools4Env) is an IT company, start up from the EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) in 2009. TOOLS provides customers efficient, transparent and reliable solutions for collecting, managing and communicating environmental data.

TOOLS was created under the concept that the world is facing environmental challenges which require from companies to collect and manage numbers of new environmental data both for communication or regulatory purposes. The regulation is more and more focusing on the environmental performances of the products in a life cycle perspective. This requires substantial efforts for collecting, controlling and computing environmental data.

Experience shows that the cost of managing data is proportional to the number of data concerned and increase exponentially. Indeed, the number of data sources, the level of quality requirements of these data, the interconnection between data can become expensive. Thus structuring and organizing environmental data is necessary for reducing the cost and ensuring efficiency of the management of environmental data.
