This CPD course has been developed by UCL in collaboration with Ellen MacArthur Foundation's education team.

This short course will give you an introduction to life cycle assessment (LCA) methods and how to apply them in real-life situations.

Life cycle assessment (LCA) is a rapidly evolving tool used to determine impacts of products or systems over a range of environmental and resource issues. Applying this method of assessment is complex and difficult and translating the theory into a credible, transparent and applicable practice can be very challenging.

The course consists of two parts. You can book both parts together, or choose to do part 1 or 2 only.

In part 1 (two days) you'll develop a solid understanding of the process, data requirements and how to make use of the results. You'll then get the chance to apply this knowledge to real-life case studies.

In part 2 (two days) you'll learn how to apply systems thinking and LCA to assess environmental dimension of circular economy, including both technical and biological materials cycles. You'll then learn how to critically evaluate and compare circularity indicator tools with LCA.

There will be many opportunities to:

  • discuss and benchmark the particular challenges you face within your organisation 
  • receive guidance from UCL experts and industry experts

 The course costs:

  • £600 - part 1 or part 2 only
  • £1,080 - parts 1 and 2 booked together (includes 10% discount)
