Life cycle assessment - an overview live webinar

Description

This webinar provides a basic introduction to life cycle assessment (LCA) and calculating the carbon footprint of a building. Life cycle assessment underpins all BRANZ carbon tools, so this webinar is a recommended introduction to our other carbon tools webinars.

The webinar covers:

  • Climate change and how it affects Aotearoa New Zealand’s built environment
  • The fundamentals of LCA such as relevant standards, life cycle stages, and environmental indicators

How to use your results to inform design decisions.
