Our Key Programme Areas
1. Technical and Policy Advice, and Stewardship for Life Cycle Approaches
The Life Cycle Initiative offers a Community of Practice of choice. This allows collaboration towards mainstreaming Life Cycle Thinking and approaches into decision and policy making. Typically, a group of users seeking guidance for life cycle approaches in concrete applications would be gathered with relevant experts, selected in an open process.
The Community of Practice is achieved through: a global forum for life cycle user groups (to identify areas where more development work is needed); a repository of best practice (capitalizing experiences at different levels, from companies to governments), and; global guidance, tools and position papers developed collaboratively by life cycle experts and users (providing value in the process of harmonization and improvement of the use of life cycle knowledge).
