LCA Course: Introductory Module

GBCA and Edge Environment have partnered together to bring you a specialised training course focused on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).

LCA is the most comprehensive method to assess the environmental impacts of products and assets throughout their lifetime. This leading assessment technique is now integrated into Green Star rating tools via Innovation Challenges and two LCA-based draft credits.   So if you, or your customers, are working with Green Star, your project team needs to understand how to work with LCA.
