ISO 14040 Life Cycle Assessment Training​ Course Overview

ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation) is a non-profit organisation that produces standards to assure the quality, safety, and efficiency of products, services, and systems. As people are becoming more conscious of the need for environmental preservation and the potential consequences of products, there is a greater desire to develop strategies to better assess and resolve these consequences. The ISO 14040 is a family of standards that describe how to conduct a product's life cycle assessment. A cradle-to-grave or cradle-to-cradle analysis approach is used to evaluate environmental implications associated with all phases of a product's life, from raw material extraction to materials processing, manufacturing, distribution, and usage. This training course will help the learners to know about energy usage or air emissions, across a product's full life cycle to help customers make environmentally friendly decisions. Holding skills and knowledge about the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) will help individuals assist organisations in improving their goods and services, or in producing their first, or enhanced, sustainability report.

In this 1-day ISO 14040 training course, delegates will enlighten their knowledge about the techniques for calculating the environmental effect of a product across its full life cycle. They will also learn about the customers or consumers that prefer products with the best quality, performance, and features according to the product concept. Our highly expert trainer with years of experience in teaching ISO standards will conduct this training course and help delegates become mindful of and practice various lifecycle management strategies. 

Delegates will also cover various other important topics as well, such as:

  • General
  • Need for critical review
  • Critical review processes
  • Terms and definitions
  • Goal and scope definition

At the end of this training, delegates will be able to identify the principles of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to get a full image of the product, process, or service. They will also be able to make individuals and decision-makers gain a better understanding of the harm caused by resource usage and pollution.
