Life Cycle Analysis and Carbon Footprinting Session Outline
Part Three of Greening Business: Life cycle analysis is a relatively new approach to environmental management which seeks to understand the impact of all related aspects of a product or service over its whole life cycle from production to disposal. An understanding of life cycle analysis is essential to a holistic understanding of the impact of products and services and hence the environmental benefits of changes to processes. It also underpins the process of carbon footprinting.
