Life Cycle Analysis

Categorized Under: Environment



Lifecycle analysis (LCA) is a powerful analytical tool used by companies to provide information on the true costs and impacts of their products, processes, systems, or services. The results of an LCA can inform corporate decision-making in a variety of areas. LCA can also help a company identify opportunities to optimize processes, save money, "green" its reputation, or increase its competitive advantage. This paper from ICF International provides an overview of LCA and its beneficial applications in the corporate environment.
