Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a methodology for assessing the environmental aspects associated with a product over its life
cycle. The most important application is analysis of the contribution of life cycle stages to the overall environmental load,
usually with the aim of prioritizing improvements on products or processes.
The LCA, which often includes the assessment of greenhouse gases (GHGs) known as a carbon footprint, is being increasingly
utilized for manufacturing purposes, specifically to technology outlets whose material use has not only an environmental impact,
but an impact to society and on the health of individuals.
Being active with the LCA means being able to communicate the environmental impact of products and business processes.
Examining a product?s life cycle across its many stages provides a useful framework for thinking about how product changes will
impact the environment. Product attributes can be improved for each life cycle stage. Focus is usually placed on the environmental
impacts arising from manufacturing, but it is also important to consider the upstream impacts (those that occur before the
product is manufactured, such as mining or processing the input materials) and downstream impacts (after manufacture
including distribution, use, and final disposal) of a product.
For this session, these main points that will be covered as they relate to:
?Carbon Footprint Strategy
?Carbon Footprint as an environmental strategy
?Climate change strategy & accounting - US and Global outlook
?GHG Protocol - history and application
?Carbon offsetting - when you?ve reduced all you can Sustainable energy - how LCA is driving its development
