About

    The Life Cycle Association of New Zealand (LCANZ) was established in June 2009 to provide a focal point for Life Cycle Assessment and Management work conducted in New Zealand. It aims to promote networking and knowledge sharing between organisations and people. It will also promote and raise the awareness of Life Cycle Thinking amongst the wider public and business.

    LCANZ started about five years ago as an informal group of keen individuals, mainly LCA practitioners. We now have formal recognition as an independent special interest group for LCA in New Zealand with a representative membership, including industry, practitioners and researchers. The organisation has been supported by an initial grant from the Ministry for Economic Development.

    The key tasks for LCANZ in its first year of operation are: a) the development of a strategy for LCA in New Zealand, b) contributing to and supporting development of a national Life Cycle Inventory database for New Zealand, c) holding the first LCA conference in New Zealand in Autumn 2010.
