Using an impact method and interpreting the results of an LCA, from a practitioner’s point of view

As an LCA practitioner, it is sometimes difficult to navigate the different impact methods available and to know how to interpret them. The purpose of this training is to demystify the impact assessment and interpretation phases of LCA in order to better understand how to use the different impact methods and interpret them appropriately. The training takes a practical perspective (not the impact method developer’s perspective) based on the use of the IMPACT World+ regionalized impact methodology.

  • Understanding the fundamentals of the LCA impact assessment phase
  • Understand the key similarities and differences between several impact methods
  • Use and interpret a midpoint and damage-oriented impact methodology
  • Using and interpreting a regionalized impact method
