Life-cycle Analyses (LCA)
Beiersdorf uses LCA to assess and reduce the environmental impact associated with all stages of a product’s life-cycle. The model we use considers inputs and impacts across raw materials, our own production processes, transportation, product use, recycling and Disposal. The results we get from our LCAs allow us to identify opportunities to bring more environmentally-friendly products to the markets and make progress towards our 2020 commitment.

The principles of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
Life cycle assessment is an important tool for making industries more sustainable. It allows industries to calculate the environmental impacts of their activities and determines options for improvement. It forms a bridge between the 'grey' environment (industry, world of man) and the 'green' environment (nature). Sustain is a Dutch company with expertise in Life Cycle Assessment.

Life Cycle Assessment
This video is part of an online course being taught at the University of California, "ICS 5: Global Disruption and Information Technology". Only a portion of the course material is accessible via YouTube. Course Description: The world is changing rapidly. Environmental concerns, social transformations, and economic uncertainties are pervasive. However, certain human needs remain relatively constant—things like nutritious food, clean water, secure shelter, and close human social contact. This course seeks to understand how sociotechnical systems (that is, collections of people and information technologies) may support a transition to a sustainable civilization that allows for human needs and wants to be met in the face of global change. In this course, students will learn about how information technology works, and how humans and information technology interact. In addition it will provide students with a structured opportunity to interrogate what is important to them in life, and how communities and technologies can support those aspects of their lives. Topics covered will include: introductions to information technology, the science behind global change, and scientific studies of human wellbeing, and a range of topical discussions such as IT for local food production, computational systems to support resource sharing, resilient currency technologies, and localized, low-energy technological infrastructure.

Reducing Environmental Impacts Using Life Cycle Assessment (Elements of Sustainability Series)
In this lecture, Dr. Jeremiah Johnson (NC State, Associate Professor, Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering) talks about how by using life cycle assessment (LCA), companies can identify the best opportunities to reduce environmental impacts, informing decisions relating to material choice, supply chains, production processes, in-use impacts, and end of life management. Relying on new insights from LCA, companies can prioritize their efforts in meeting their sustainability goals and achieve meaningful change. Read more at consumer.dow.com/sustainabilityelements

What is LIFE-CYCLE ASSESSMENT? What does LIFE-CYCLE ASSESSMENT mean? LIFE-CYCLE ASSESSMENT meaning - LIFE-CYCLE ASSESSMENT definition - LIFE-CYCLE ASSESSMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Life-cycle assessment (LCA, also known as life-cycle analysis, ecobalance, and cradle-to-grave analysis) is a technique to assess environmental impacts associated with all the stages of a product's life from cradle to grave (i.e., from raw material extraction through materials processing, manufacture, distribution, use, repair and maintenance, and disposal or recycling). Designers use this process to help critique their products. LCAs can help avoid a narrow outlook on environmental concerns by: - Compiling an inventory of relevant energy and material inputs and environmental releases; - Evaluating the potential impacts associated with identified inputs and releases; - Interpreting the results to help make a more informed decision. The goal of LCA is to compare the full range of environmental effects assignable to products and services by quantifying all inputs and outputs of material flows and assessing how these material flows affect the environment. This information is used to improve processes, support policy and provide a sound basis for informed decisions. Life Cycle Assessment A systematic set of procedures for compiling and examining the inputs and outputs of materials, energy and the associated environmental impacts directly attributable to the functioning of a product or service system throughout its life cycle. The term life cycle refers to the notion that a fair, holistic assessment requires the assessment of raw-material production, manufacture, distribution, use and disposal including all intervening transportation steps necessary or caused by the product's existence. There are two main types of LCA. Attributional LCAs seek to establish (or attribute) the burdens associated with the production and use of a product, or with a specific service or process, at a point in time (typically the recent past). Consequential LCAs seek to identify the environmental consequences of a decision or a proposed change in a system under study (oriented to the future), which means that market and economic implications of a decision may have to be taken into account. Social LCA is under development as a different approach to life cycle thinking intended to assess social implications or potential impacts. Social LCA should be considered as an approach that is complementary to environmental LCA. The procedures of life cycle assessment (LCA) are part of the ISO 14000 environmental management standards: in ISO 14040:2006 and 14044:2006. (ISO 14044 replaced earlier versions of ISO 14041 to ISO 14043.) GHG product life cycle assessments can also comply with specifications such as PAS 2050 and the GHG Protocol Life Cycle Accounting and Reporting Standard. According to the ISO 14040 and 14044 standards, a Life Cycle Assessment is carried out in four distinct phases as illustrated in the figure shown to the right. The phases are often interdependent in that the results of one phase will inform how other phases are completed.

Introduction to Life-Cycle Modeling for Solid Waste Managment
Life-cycle assessment (LCA) is a systematic framework for estimating the environmental emissions and impacts associated with a product, process, or system. LCA is an iterative process that consists of four primary stages: (1) Goal and Scope Definition, (2) Life-Cycle Inventory (LCI), (3) Life-Cycle Impact Assessment (LCIA), and (4) Interpretation and Improvement. The Goal and Scope Definition stage defines the purpose of the LCA, the product or system to be assessed (i.e., a functional unit), and the environmental emissions and impacts to be considered. The LCI calculates all of the input and output flows of mass and energy for each process in the system, and the LCIA characterizes the environmental impacts associated with the emissions and mass flows calculated in the LCI (e.g., global warming potential from CO2, CH4, and N2O). Finally the Interpretation and Improvement stage reviews the results of the LCA and ensures that each of the stages are consistent with each other (e.g., the analysis matches the purpose defined in the Goal and Scope Definition) and identifies potential areas for improvement in a process or system.
