Sam Hinton

Head of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

Sam leads Ricardo’s dedicated LCA team, providing clients with robust assessments of their products and processes. Sam helps clients understand and meet the requirements of standards such as ISO14040, ISO14044 and ISO14067 as well as providing support in the creation of Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) and in ensuring alignment with the European Commission’s Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) initiative.

Sam and his team utilise LCA to evaluate a wide suite of environmental indicators enabling organisations to gain a more holistic view of their products’ impacts. This helps clients implement reduction strategies, avoid burden shifting and achieve true sustainability. The team works with clients to identify the best solution for their LCA needs, be it a bespoke tool or a pre-existing platform such as SimaPro, GaBi or OneClickLCA. Additionally, they provide focused assessments on products and processes purely in relation to potential carbon impacts, helping to better understand the scope 1, scope 2, and scope 3 hotspots in carbon footprinting.

Sam has delivered in-depth LCAs in numerous sectors including automotive, energy, chemicals, rail, aviation, construction, manufacturing and water. This has provided him and the team with a number of useful insights into different industries which can be applied to better customise their LCA services.
