Europe Interest Groups: Life Cycle Assessment

The SETAC Europe LCA Interest Group is aimed at advancing the science, practice, and application of LCAs to reduce the resource consumption and environmental burdens associated with products, packaging, processes, or activities.

It serves as the focal point of a broad-based forum for the identification, resolution, and communication of issues regarding LCAs. Moreover, it facilitates, coordinates, and provides guidance for the development and implementation of LCAs, in collaboration with the LCA North America and, more recently, also with other societies that address the life cycle concepts in an interdisciplinary way. This is achieved by means of a series of initiatives that includes, among others, the planning and organization of LCA session at the annual meeting and conferences, such as the LCA Case Study Symposium.

Since 2011, the SETAC Europe LCA Interest Group has been joining the Global Coordinating Group (GCG), established as a mechanism for communication between the regional Interest Groups in Europe and North America and to allow the other Geographic Units to have representation in global SETAC LCA affairs. The mission of the LCA Global Coordinating Group within SETAC is to encourage and coordinate regional Interest Group efforts to advance the science, practice, and application of LCAs and ensure that a global perspective is maintained toward the achievement of LCA Interest Group objectives.
