Conference abstract book

This conference is held annually by the American Center for Life Cycle Assessment. Environmental life cycle professionals, industry, government, and NGO's come together to discuss life cycle approaches to sustainability, both from a technical and from a practical viewpoint.

This year, CIRAIG (the Canadian LCA research centre), CADIS and ITAM (Mexican LCA centers) and SETAC North America join with the American Center for Life Cycle Assessment to produce the first joint co-located LCA conference for all of North America. With the current disruption in world markets, never has it been more important to understand the sustainability implication of our decisions, and to use the best available science for planning for the global life cycle economy. We invite you to share your ideas and research to make a difference in 2009 and move forward.
