Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) Introduction Course

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a method of evaluating the potential environmental impacts of products and services. This evaluation is based on the whole life cycle of the product/service, or a cradle-to-grave approach, with typical stages including extraction of raw materials, processing, manufacturing, packaging and distribution, use, and waste disposal including landfill, reuse and recycling.
