Life Cycle Assessment is a fundamental tool for companies working towards net zero emissions and will support them in achieving and reporting on their ESG performance (Environmental Social Governance), especially in the context of Australia mandatory climate reporting planned to commence in 2024.  This presentation compares the environmental footprint (and not just CO2) of mineral transformer oil, natural ester and synthetic ester through a “cradle to grave” LCA in line with ISO 14040/14044 standards.  It brings some light on the essential role of the circular economy while avoiding any green washing for the benefit of asset manufacturers, owners and operators having to balance technical performance, asset life and environmental footprint.
