LCA is fast becoming the new benchmark for sustainable design philosophy. It presents as the ultimate tool for ensuring genuinely positive design results and it has/is being integrated into most progressive green building standards globally. Where it has typically been employed to optimise individual products or concepts, it is now rapidly being deployed in the building industry. The learning outcomes of this presentation will ensure attendees will have a good understanding of what LCA is and how it can be utilized to improve the design outcomes of their next project.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Define how LCA can be integrated during design alongside standard ESD
  2. Consider what the future holds for LCA
  3. Describe how LCA applies to the built form and explain the limitations and boundaries of LCA in analyzing the built environment
  4. List low carbon design principles
