VI International conference on life cycle assessment in Latin America: CILCA 2015—Lima, Peru, July 13 to 16, 2015

We are pleased to inform you that the Iberoamerican Life Cycle Network, the Peruvian Life Cycle Network and the UNEP/SETAC Life Cycle Initiative will be organizing the sixth edition of the International Conference on Life Cycle Assessment in Latin-America on July 13 to 16, 2015 in Lima, Peru.

The International Conference on Life Cycle Assessment (CILCA) is an event held in Latin America every 2 years, and the last conference in Mendoza (Argentina) confirms this growing interest; CILCA 2013 was the biggest life cycle conference ever held in Latin America with approximately 250 participants.

CILCA provides a venue for sharing ideas and experiences regarding the application and dissemination of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and life cycle thinking-based tools in Latin America. CILCA 2015 aims to gather practitioners and users of life cycle thinking-based tools, government, companies, NGO’s, industrial sectors and universities and research institutes of the Latin American region.

This event is very important for the economic development of the region, considering that the Life Cycle Assessment can help with the design of regulations and more sustainable decision-making processes of organizations, companies and governments.
