The Australian Life Cycle Assessment Society (ALCAS) would like to advise you of a Roundtable / Webinar on “Soil quality indicators in LCA”, to be held in Canberra on 8-9 April. 
The workshop will bring together soil scientists and environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) researchers to discuss how soil quality can be represented in product life cycle environmental assessment.

Enviromark Solutions Limited has been appointed as the Project Manager to develop the Australasian Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) Scheme based on the International EPD® System, on behalf of LCANZ in New Zealand and ALCAS in Australia.

BRANZ has been undertaking important research into development of a New Zealand Whole Building Whole of Life Framework with the aim of providing more of a level playing field to environmental assessment of buildings, and the contribution made by products, based on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).
