Life cycle assessment (LCA) is widely used to assess the potential environmental impacts of a product, service or activity. However, true implementation of the sustainability concept requires the incorporation of economic and social dimensions, so that organisations can achieve a balance between potentially conflicting financial, social, and environmental priorities. Sustainability is therefore predicated on how these dimensions can be incorporated into decision-making, more specifically, how sustainability performance can be measured and monitored. In this webinar, we will introduce and discuss the social and economic counterparts to the better-known LCA methodology and will demonstrate how these tools can support other business applications (such as sustainability reporting). Save 30 minutes in your calendar to learn more about what else LCA has to offer.
This webinar will cover
- Introduction to life cycle thinking
- Recap of Life Cycle Assessment
- Introduction to Life Cycle Costing
- Introduction to Social LCA

Anyone with an interest in sustainability and/or life cycle assessment (LCA), in particular those who may be thinking about conducting an LCA for their products/services and are searching for more information on social and economic aspects of sustainability.
