SETAC Europe Life Cycle Assessment Interest Group
Share |

The mission of the Life-cycle Assessment (LCA) Interest Group in Europe is to advance the science, practice, and application of LCAs to reduce the resource consumption and environmental burdens associated with products, packaging, processes, or activities. The organisation serves as the focal point in Europe of a broad-based forum for the identification, resolution, and communication of issues regarding LCAs, and it facilitates, coordinates, and provides guidance for the development and implementation of LCAs in close cooperation with the North America LCA Interest Group and the LCA Global Coordinating Group (GCG).

Core tasks of the LCA Interest Group include planning and organising LCA sessions at the annual meetings and European conferences, such as the LCA Case Studies Symposium; coordination of topical working groups; preparation and global integration of SETAC LCA publications; and promotion of the UNEP/SETAC Life Cycle Initiative.
