Experiences of 12 road testers with O-LCA application now available for download

The report ‘Road testing organizational life cycle assessment around the world: Applications, experiences and lessons learned’ is now published!

This report is being released following the successful launch in 2015 of the ‘Guidance on Organizational Life Cycle Assessment’, a Life Cycle Initiative publication with more than 10,000 downloads to date. After this report, the Organizational LCA (O-LCA) flagship project embarked on an ambitious piloting process: O-LCA was applied by 12 organizations from around the world: the “O-LCA road testers”. The new publication offers in-depth insights into O-LCA application, developed from the outcomes of the road testing. It includes an executive summary for each of the road testers’ case studies, and it presents the results of a comprehensive survey through which the road testers share their experience, feedback and lessons learned.

The publication’s case studies represent an important contribution to the existing body of examples and guidelines, which the authors hope will promote and inspire further application of O-LCA, greater use of the O-LCA Guidance, and on-going enhancement of the O-LCA methodology.
