The Role of Life Cycle Assessment in Sustainability Management

This event is co-sponsored by M.S. in Sustainability Management and the Research Program in Sustainability Policy and Management

The process of tracking the environmental and social impact of consumer products from “cradle to grave”—known as Life Cycle Assessment—is gaining in popularity, thanks to progress in respective accounting rules and databases, evolving software, and, crucially, ever-increasing consumer awareness. Existing and forthcoming policies, from sustainable fuel standards to carbon offset credits and the European Environmental Footprint, will drive this evolution forward, as will advances in AI-based tools. But what does this mean for manufacturers and their suppliers? Where are their pain points? And what R&D skills in university graduates are needed to overcome remaining obstacles? Dr. Steven Cohen will interview a panel of experts from both the private sector and Columbia University’s own Research Program on Sustainability Policy and Management to address these important questions.

This event is free and open to the public.
