Hi Llorenc! What would you say is the easiest LCA tool an organisation should use to prioritise actions for SCP if they are LCA 'beginners'?

Hello Janet!
Many thanks for your question. The key thing for organisations is to incorporate Life Cycle Thinking, and this can be done at many levels. The recently published "Guidance on Organizational Life Cycle Assessment" provides 4 differentiated pathways for an organization of any kind (big or small, public or private) to incorporate Life Cycle Thinking depending on their level of expertise. You can download the guidance from http://bit.ly/1QUI0l0, and/or visit the UNEP/SETAC Life Cycle Initiative website (www.lifecycleinitiative.org) to learn more about life cycle thinking.
Thanks for your interest! Llorenc
