Webinar 1: Life-Cycle Assessment: A Fundamental Tool for Assessing Environmental Performance
This first webinar in this series outlined LCA methodology and demonstrated how other businesses have already benefitted from LCA. It showed how LCA provides organizations with the comprehensive set of quantified environmental metrics required to assess the full spectrum of environmental impacts of a product or process. It included case studies on:
- Assessing cleaning product formulations to identify hot spots
- Comparing distribution packaging options
- Quantifying energy and emissions for recycling postconsumer plastic resins
- Capturing a more complete picture of the environmental implications of different waste management options
LCA is a tool that is being used more and more by successful companies to assess the environmental impacts of their processes, products and services from cradle to grave. If you have responsibility for understanding and reducing the environmental impacts of your business, or if you influence those that do, LCA can help you achieve your corporate sustainability goals.
