Have you ever wondered if there is an accurate way to determine your organisation’s carbon footprint?

Life cycle analysis/assessment (LCA) is a methodology that assesses the environmental impacts across the different life cycle stages of a product or process. As a tool, it is becoming commonplace across industries as the drive to improve sustainability and achieve carbon neutrality comes to the fore.

What we’ll cover

Here we provide a taster of our life cycle analysis course, including an in-depth overview of the tool, how it can and should be used, also exploring available software options and a case study to show the details of the tool step by step.

Who should join this webinar?

Anyone from a small to medium sized manufacturing businesses with or no knowledge of LCA.
