Products have cradle-to-grave sustainability impacts, starting with extraction of the resources required to manufacture them and ending with their role in a waste management or recycling system. But how can we measure, quantify, and ultimately improve a product’s sustainability across an entire life cycle?
ISSP’s June course will outline the steps involved in Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) and how they can inform decision-making by organizations and sustainability professionals. Taught by Jeff Yorzyk, Associate Director of Sustainability at HelloFresh, this course will provide an overview of the LCA process, its use in accrediting product sustainability (especially in determining eligibility for LEED credits), and how sustainability professionals can get LCAs up and running at their own companies. Live sessions on June 13th and 20th - sign up today!
Thank you Taylor!
Internships are designed to gain valuable work experience as you begin your sustainability career, however, we often learn more than we teach and ISSP’s experience working with Taylor Recela was no exception. As an ISSP intern, Taylor was not only instrumental in getting the Ambassador program up and running last summer but she also continued to manage the program this year while maintaining a full course load in Logistics Management with a minor in Environment, Economy, Development, and Sustainability (EEDS) at The Ohio State University. Next, Taylor is applying her ability to maximize system efficiency while incorporating her passion for sustainability as an intern with The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. Thank you Taylor for all you have done for ISSP! We can’t wait to watch you change the world!
