ISO 14044 Environmental Life-cycle Assessment

What is ISO 14044?

ISO 14044 provides guidelines for life-cycle assessment. Our course explores the definition, objectives and scope of the Life-cycle Assessment. The following phases are life-cycle inventory analysis, life-cycle impact assessment, life-cycle interpretation, reporting and critical review of the LCA, limitations of the LCA, relationship between the different phases of the LCA, and conditions for use of value choices and optional elements. In simple terms, it is a tool used to assess the potential environmental impacts of a product, material, process, or activity.

It also presents a systematic set of procedures for collecting and observing the inputs and outputs of materials and energy as well as the associated environmental impacts directly attributable to the functioning of a product or service system throughout its life cycle.

Why are Environmental Life-cycle Assessment Trainings important for you?
