A course is now being offered on the life cycle approach. Life cycle assessment (LCA) is being used by businesses and governments to improve the sustainability of products, processes and services. Businesses like 3M, Alcan, HP, Procter & Gamble, Unilever and others are using LCA to reduce product costs, increase market share and mitigate climate and energy risk. It is also embedded within the Sustainable Manufacturing Indicator Repository (SMIR).
To help businesses understand LCA, a course is being offered which is appropriately titled, “Life Cycle Assessment of Products, Processes & Services.” The course is offered in partnership with the internationally renowned group CIRAIG, the Interuniversity Research Centre for the Life Cycle of Products, Processes and Services.
This program is geared to learn LCA concepts, inventory, impact assessment, data quality management, post impact calculations, modeling, software, statistics and the ISO 14040 and ISO 14044 standards. It will also help participants acquire knowledge applicable to the American Centre for Life Cycle Assessment Certification Exam.
