Who is this training for?

This course is designed for those with basic knowledge of EPDs or limited experience of product life-cycle assessment, who now wish to take the next step in conducting LCAs for their products (e.g., manufacturers), or on behalf of their clients (consultants).

What you'll learn

✔ The training starts with discussing the important decisions that need to be made at the beginning of your project. You will learn what data is needed and how to collect and standardize it.

✔ You will become familiar with the content of both the background report and EPD document, as well as LCA methodologies.

✔ In addition to raw materials and manufacturing calculations, the course will cover examples of life-cycle scenarios for the use stage and end of life modules.
