Life Cycle Assessment

One-day course providing an insight into the principles of Life Cycle Assessment and how to interpret a report

This one-day, classroom-based training course provides an introduction to Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).  It covers LCA in the context of sustainability and life cycle thinking, as well as introducing the methodology behind LCA and how to interpret and critically evaluate information produced.

Requests for product environmental information have increased dramatically, and more and more organisations are expected to report on product environmental impacts or make decisions using LCA results.

 The training course will help you to:

  • Understand LCA in the context of Sustainable Development, and its links to the circular economy and wider social and economic considerations
  • Understand how LCA can be used to report on or market product environmental information
  • Engage with LCA methodology and commercial software options
  • Critically evaluate LCA information and know what questions to ask
