DescriptionA Life Cycle Assessment is the act of measuring the environmental impact of a product or service throughout its life cycle, from the resources used to create the product or service, across its use by the user, to it's final end of life destination. An LCA measures the environmental impacts of each distinct part involved in creating and using products and services, such as energy used in production, fuel used in transport, and end-of-life ecological costs. This helps us compare between products, materials, and methods used, providing useful information by which to make decisions that could help the environment.
This event will explore the advantages of LCA's and how it can provide you with a clearer picture of your environmental impact and help you make more informed decisions to improve your organisation's sustainability going forward.
The session will begin with an introduction into LCA's with Dr Alejandro Gallego Schmid, Senior Lecturer in Circular Economy and Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment, followed by three concurrent breakout rooms (topics listed in agenda) which attendees will select during the booking process. At 1pm the breakout rooms will close and we welcome guests to stay for networking with a complimentary lunch.
