Abstract: In the last two decades the power sector has been adopting environmental conscious practices in several business areas and processes. Bridging the identification of environmental “hot-spots” in the product life cycle and the implementation and execution of an environmental management system requires an integrated approach starting with a Life Cycle Assessment to identify the improvement potentials; then analyzing the current management and product development systematics in use, and finally mapping the environmental practices against the improvement potential. The improvement tracking will be embedded in the management system as an Environmental Improvement Roadmap, mapping the efforts required to realize the goals. The methodology has been implemented in pilot studies, focusing on the processes performed in-house to enable further decisions on process alternatives and providing reliable information for strategic decisions within the Siemens Environmental Product Portfolio.
