Press Release: Joint Life Cycle Assessment Interest Group

ACLCA and SETAC have joined forces to tackle the technical challenges of LCA that our combined memberships face in their daily work. We want to encourage all ACLCA members to become involved in this important work and help us improve and refine life cycle assessment methodology and practice for the benefit of the North American as well as the global LCA community.

You can get involved through the following pathways:

  1. Go to to register with the Joint LCA Interest Group. (how-to-guide)You don’t need to be a member of ACLCA or SETAC to join the IG, so please feel free to share this with other colleagues in the field that may not be aware of this opportunity.
  2. Volunteer to become a member of the 2020 Steering Committee by contacting the current Chair Dr. Christoph Koffler at [email protected]. The Steering Committee (SC) currently holds monthly online meetings and its tasks include prioritizing topics for future Working Groups under the Interest Group and then monitoring and supporting their work. The SC is also responsible for soliciting proposals for LCA-related sessions and abstracts for the annual SETAC North America meetings.  Participation in the Steering Committee requires active membership in either ACLCA or SETAC or both.
  3. Volunteer to participate in future Working Groups in 2020. Once registered to the Joint Interest Group (see 1.), you will receive all email communications from the Steering Committee, including all calls for volunteers to participate in Working Groups. The participation in Working Groups is open to anybody and does not require membership in either organization.
