Event Details

Life Cycle Assessment 101: A Simulated Approach

This course meets on-line on Tuesdays (June 1, 8, 15, 22) at 1:00 PM Pacific Time for 60-90 minutes.

Instructor: Thomas Gloria, PhD, Boston

This is an introductory course on life cycle assessment. Participants will learn the steps involved and complete a simple life cycle assessment in a business simulation using an Excel spreadsheet.  You will gain an understanding of the scope, challenges and possibilities in applying life cycle assessment to decision-making processes.  This is a great introductory course for:

  • sustainability professionals wondering if LCA would be a good field to get into
  • sustainability practitioners who may need to hire a firm to do a detailed LCA and need to know enough about the process to manage the project
  • sustainability professionals who need an introduction to LCA before taking the 'deep dive' into the certification training.

This workshop is a prerequisite for the LCA certification training that ISSP hopes to offer later (although experienced LCA professionals can 'test out' of this course).

We will not cover commercial LCA software tools such as SimaPro and GaBi and is not sufficient to pass the American Center for LCA (ACLCA), LCA Certified Professional (LCACP) exam ( http://www.lcacenter.org/certification.html).
