True life cycle impact: A full analysis of sustainable alternatives
8 September 2020 | 9.00 am - 5.00 pm

It is easy to assume that the emerging sustainable trends such as electric vehicles and compostable packaging are considered more sustainable than previous alternatives. But there is more than it meets the eye once the true-life cycle impact is considered. Tools like Life Cycle Assessment, Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), Carbon Footprinting and Cradle to Cradle™ can help with this. This masterclass workshop will guide you through a process of delving into the full extent of the impacts of sustainable options. By attending this workshop, it will enable you to demystify what the true heroes are in your quest towards complete sustainable procurement.

  • Explore and understand the full life cycle- mapping out the value chain and identifying hotspots
  • Learn how to interpret Life Cycle Assessment results
  • Get ready to start your own journey towards Cradle to Cradle certification
  • Compare and weight up the pros and cons to make the decision best for your organisation
  • Decide what sustainable procurement options are best for your organisation
