Life cycle assessment (LCA) has emerged in recent years as a vital tool in meeting the challenges of a greening market. LCA makes the link between production processes used to make products and the consumers and decision makers interested in selecting and promoting products which reduce the impacts on the environmental and lead us toward a more sustainable economy.

The conference will run over three days with strong focus on the benefits of using LCA in business for better decision making and for promoting greener processes, products and services. In addition there are sector specific themes including carbon, water, buildings, agriculture, waste management and energy. Abstracts for papers and posters are invited (until end of January 2013) on the following subjects:

  • Life cycle assessment
