Natural Resources Institute Finland and Biocode Forge Partnership to Revolutionize Digital LCA

Emma Valli

Marketing Coordinator

Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke) and Biocode have entered into a strategic partnership to offer digital life cycle assessments (LCA) to food chain operators. The collaboration aims to enable both harmonized and customized life cycle assessments. And facilitate the production of low-emission food for both domestic and international food industry companies.

In the new innovative service, Biocode’s strong emission calculation application development expertise is combined with Luke’s deep understanding of life cycle assessment. The service makes it possible to sum the results from many individual operators at different stages of the chain.

Research and practical work come together

Luke is responsible for the service’s calculation models, and Biocode is responsible for the digital solution. This Finnish top expertise is now being taken to the world together.

“Continuous environmental impact management must be easy in order to both open up opportunities for new, more sustainable products and businesses. And to meet the growing corporate responsibility reporting needs. By combining our forces with Luke, we are better able to serve the customers and build a more sustainable society together,” says Biocode CEO Ernesto Hartikainen.

It is important to us that the customer can easily calculate the environmental impacts of their own product, with a low threshold. Information enables the making of more sustainable solutions.

“Luke’s mission is to focus on science, and we are constantly developing, among other things, life cycle assessment methods and practices. Luke has also done pioneering work to promote chained, automated life cycle assessment. Offering calculation models for businesses is a way for us to put research into practice and where it’s really needed,” says Luke researcher Kirsi Usva.

Natural Resources Institute (Luke) is a Finnish research institute that delivers value and solutions to its customers through research. Luke has over 20 years of experience in life cycle assessment of food and agricultural products and related methodological development.

Biocode is a Finnish company aiming for international growth, developing a digital platform solution for environmental impact assessment and reporting. Biocode has been building technology since 2018. ProAgria Centres Association and Mtech Digital Solutions wanted to reduce the carbon footprint of food production, and that’s how Biocode was originated.
