The YuKan start-up

The Yukan startup was born in the context of the EC’s Single Market for Green Products initiative, based on the belief that such an initiative is a real opportunity in so far as it provides a unique rigorous and reliable generic method for assessing environmental performance of products so as to enable manufacturers to know, optimize and value their efforts on environmental issues.

Aware of the complexity of the implementation of this generic method without strong LCA expertise, we have created the first digital platform called “Yukan” allowing the practical exploitation of all ‘PEFCR”s (Product Environmental Footprint Caterogy Rules – document containing all rules and information to evaluation the environmental performance of a products’ category) by all manufacturers by simply introducing online their own activity data and without the need for any LCA expertise, and thus, to remove all the barriers to the implementation of theses “PEFCR”.

As some of you discovered during a first presentation we held in Brussels last July, the Yukan platform was successfully tested on 8 PEFCRs (in the stage of development they were before the Remodeling), which allowed to demonstrate that it was possible to implement any “PEFCR” within a few days in order to allow any manufacturer to evaluate its products in a few minutes and without LCA expertise.
