Carbon Footprinting through Life Cycle Assessment (42 HOURS)

Carbon Footprinting through Life Cycle Assessment
In line with the global drive towards a net-zero goal, a carbon footprint is an effective Key Performance Indicator (KPI) for communicating a product’s environmental and sustainability performance. It is also an ideal indicator to reflect a company’s contributions and achievements in adopting green practices and technologies. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is the underlying technique to assess carbon footprint, amongst other environmental impacts, associated with the entire life cycle, including raw material extraction, manufacturing, distribution, usage and end-of-life. Carbon footprinting through life cycle assessment provides visibility to the factors impacting a company’s bottom line, like energy consumption, materials utilisation and waste management. Increasing pressure from investors, governments, and customers is making life cycle assessment critical for any company pursuing sustainability goals.

About the Programme

The Carbon Footprinting through Life Cycle Assessment Programme focuses on life cycle thinking and assessment for industrial sustainability. It educates participants on the importance of life cycle thinking, followed by the introduction of the four major phases of LCA (ISO 14040:2006). The four major phases include 1) Goal and Scope definition, 2) Life Cycle Inventory Analysis, 3) Life Cycle Impact Assessment and 4) Interpretation. At the end of the programme, participants will be equipped with both knowledges about the methodology and hands-on experience to assess the environmental impact and effectively communicate the eco-performance of products.
