New phase, renewed strategy

During its 15th year, in 2017, the Life Cycle Initiative will be starting a new phase with a renewed strategy.

A broad multi-stakeholder working group has been formed to bring in the perspectives from Governments, Industry, Academia, NGOs… from around the globe. We were humbled by the strong interest shown by interested participants for this working group, which is formed by members of the current governing body (the International Life Cycle Board, ILCB) together with external stakeholders who bring new perspectives on the use of Life Cycle Assessment and life cycle thinking in the public, private and academic sectors.

The composition of this Strategy Working Group, which will be delivering the Initiative’s strategy document in spring 2017, is detailed below. For more information on the strategic design and the future of the Life Cycle Initiative, please keep a close eye on our upcoming newsletters, or send an email to info(at)
