Dear expert on life cycle analysis,

We are conducting a research project on the use of life cycle analysis (LCA) in public policy. The research is funded by the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and led in collaboration with professor Manuele Margni, from the International Reference Centre for the Life Cycle of Products, Processes and Services (CIRAIG) in Montreal.

The aim is to assess where and how jurisdictions use LCA in their public policies. In a first step, we gathered information about 17 OECD jurisdictions. Given the exploratory nature of the first step, we seek to validate and complete the data.

That is why we invite you, as a leading LCA expert, to participate in a short online survey (it will take 5 to 15 minutes of your time). Start by clicking here. We would be grateful if you could complete the survey by October 15.

For any question about the research or the survey, do not hesitate to contact us. Please feel free to circulate the survey to your contacts in the LCA community!
