Get Inspired, Engage with Change-Makers in LCA and design at eLCAd2023!

eLCAd 2023 Symposium once again draws together a diverse group of educators and professionals in concentrated dialogue to explore the rapidly evolving conjunction of LCA and design.

Full Agenda and Speakers HERE

Sustainable design practices continue to be driven by a growing stream of reliable data. No longer limited by heuristic practices, ecologically responsive design increasingly leverages new methods and insights gleaned from computationally guided workflows in conjunction with proliferating material databases.

This year’s symposium focuses on the most recent developments in Policy, Education, and Communications as they play out at the intersection and execution of Life Cycle Assessment and Design.

Join us during this three-day online spring event. Interact with a growing international community of practitioners, working together to design and develop commercially viable interventions to improve the environmental profile of the industrial economy one product, one building, and one infrastructure component at a time.
