LCA Course: Sustainable Procurement and Strategy

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, your customers or your suppliers, are working with Green Star, your project team needs to understand how to work with LCA. 

About the course 

Delivered over a four-part series, each module is tailored to a specific aspect of sustainable building. You can attend, one or all of the modules delivered face-to-face or via webinar.

We encourage you to attend as many sessions as possible. 

Course leaders include:
