19 August 2020 | Ep.34 – The value of lifecycle assessment

In this episode of Stirring the Pot, we talk with Emily Townsend who is the President of the Life Cycle Association of New Zealand – or LCANZ for short.

Their mission is to provide a focal point for Life Cycle Assessment and management work in New Zealand. Networking and knowledge sharing between organisations and people, as well as promoting and raising awareness of Life Cycle Thinking amongst the wider public and businesses.

Throughout this podcast we explore Environmental life cycle thinking, which is concerned with the environmental impacts of products and services from cradle to grave. Or – in other words from extraction of raw materials all the way through to the return of these materials to the Earth. It’s this approach that has formed the basis for development of the environmental management tool Life Cycle Assessment or LCA for short.
