Environmental LCA in Design (eLCAd2021)
March 30 - April 1, 2021 

Find Out More!

This 3-day symposium unites two parallel cultures engaged in systems thinking: designers working at many different scales and the LCA community of researchers, data experts, and information interface providers. It will explore areas of common cause and mission in two sectors: building and transportation.  Through three half days of sequential and parallel presentations and working sessions, we will come together to define current and future opportunities brought about through leaps in computational speed that promise to augment sustainable design processes at multiple scales.

LCA Institute

Decarbonization of the Supply Chain: Solving the Data Challenge
April 8, 2021
Noon - 1 PM (ET)
Speakers: Dr. Martin Baitz  and Sebastian Birke, sphera
REGISTER*

The quality of the supply chain data (Scope 3.1) is crucial to identifying and improving emissions hotspots and achieving real reductions. But what should companies actually look for when searching for the right data to act as a basis for a comprehensive assessment of their supply chain?

You will learn the following by joining the webinar

  • Value chain considerations, from Scope 1 to Scope 3, requiring a holistic supply chain assessment
  • Challenges and approaches to gaining reliable, product and process-specific insights from suppliers
  • Data quality requirements to ensure accurate and robust assessment of Scope 3 emissions to support informed decarbonization approaches

GREET Building LCA Module: Preview and Demonstration
July 14, 2021
Noon - 1 PM (ET)
Speaker: Hao Cai, Argonne National Laboratory
REGISTER*

Join us and preview the Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy use in Technologies (GREET) Buiding LCA module that will be released this Fall as a standalone, transparent, and powerful tool and database to help a broad building community and its stakeholders address building sustainability and achieve deep decarbonization.
