WEBINAR RECORDING: The How and Why of an LCA

Recorded live on Thursday April 16, 2015 at 11:00 am PST / 2:00 pm EST

How can industries calculate the cradle-to-grave impacts of products, processes, and services? Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is one of the hottest topics in the sustainability profession today, yet it is still a very technical process and a mystery to many sustainability practitioners.  This presentation will provide attendees with an understanding of the LCA process, how to use the information an LCA generates, how to begin conducting an LCA, and the context of LCA within the greater scope of Life Cycle Thinking.

Mr. Yorzyk has worked with a variety of companies and trade associations on Life Cycle Assessment projects, the development of LCA capacity, and integration of Life Cycle Thinking into business process. He will draw on examples from a variety of industries and applications to present a wide perspective on LCA.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

  • Sustainability Professionals with a desire to better understand this tool, how it is used, and what to expect from an LCA study

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

  • High-level LCA methodology, how LCAs are positioned within the spectrum of “Life Cycle Thinking,” how the tool is commonly used, and what to expect from an LCA study.
