Understanding the role of Life Cycle Assessment

About this event

This event is open to Retail Institute Members only.

Understanding the carbon impact of products can be a complicated undertaking.

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a methodology is a cradle-to-grave or cradle-to-cradle analysis technique that assess environmental impacts associated with all the stages of a product's life: from raw material extraction through materials processing, manufacture, distribution, and use. However, there are many questions around how these techniques can be effectively used to support businesses in their innovation and carbon-capping efforts.

Our event in June, aims to help you unpick this topic with assistance of experienced academic panel. The experts from The University of Applied Sciences Vienna and Leeds Beckett University will answer all your questions about Life Cycle Assessment. We also have Dr Erik Pauer, a GaBi LCA tools packaging specialist to answer any questions.

The format of the event is based around a live Q&A session, with brief theme introductions from the panellists.

Draft Agenda for the event is as follows:

10.00am The Retail Institute will open the event and introduce our panel experts

10.05am Each panel expert will provide an introduction to their LCA area of speciality

11.00am Question and Answer session opens

12.00pm Round up and close.

Please register your place to attend. Please note that digital nature of the event will mean there is no limit on number of attendees for member companies.

Once you have registered, we will ask you to submit your questions in advance, but you will have the opportunity to ask additional questions on the day. This is to allow the panel to prepare the content of interest to members in advance.

Thank you & we looking forward to seeing you in June!
