Life Cycle Association of New Zealand


    ISO TC207 (Environmental Management) is the parent Technical Committee that oversees standardisation in life cycle assessment (TC207/SC5), along with environmental labelling (TC207/SC3), greenhouse gas management (TC207/SC7), environmental management systems (TC207/SC1) and other related activities.

    Planning for the next version of the Australian Green Star building environmental rating system has commenced. Due for release from 2020, it is proposed to include an increased focus on the environmental and social impacts of products and materials.

    ALCAS is looking for interested parties to organize joint webinars. The ALCAS webinar series consists of about 6 webinars per year, covering general LCA-related topics of interest to wider audiences as well as some more specialized topics for LCA specialists. By joining forces with other organizations, ALCAS aims to increase reach and inform more people of recent developments.
