GAÏA.BE®: the eco-gauging tool
Gaïa.BE®, which was developed by researchers and operations personnel using product lifecycle analysis, models the environmental impact of each phase in the implementation of worksites, including all the stages of roadwork, quarry extraction, and road surface compaction.
It provides results that take local characteristics and constraints into consideration. Relevant criteria are selected from the worksite's environmental profile included in Gaïa.BE's environmental indicators: natural resource and energy consumption, polluting emissions, waste production, and preserving the quality of life of residents. Its reference system was established using recognized and public data produced by the roadwork industry in line with current international standards. With this tool, Eurovia promotes environmentally friendly solutions that contribute to the preservation of natural resources, help mitigate climate change, and protect people.
