Special Track for Executives, Managers and Sustainability Professionals at LCA XVI
New to LCA? This special track for executives, managers or sustainability professionals is designed to guide you through the process of incorporating LCA into your company’s business practices. You will learn the value that LCA can bring to your sustainability initiatives as the cornerstone for your environmental claims. Topics include the different ways that you can use LCA, strategies to work with your suppliers to gather data and communication approaches to leverage your findings and educate your consumers.
Make the most of your LCA XVI experience.
The ACLCA Mentorship Program is offering a new service this year. It connects new attendees with LCA professionals who have experience navigating the LCA conference. "Mentors" will help "newcomers" maneuver the conference schedule of events, target important sessions and meet and get acquainted with colleagues in the field. In addition, other exciting Mentorship Program activities and events are being planned.
Sign-up today to be a mentor or mentee! Applications close on 18 July 2016. For more information, contact Debbie Steckel.
