Autumn webinar series – ‘Water footprinting techniques’ recording now available

We are pleased to now offer the recording of our first webinar in the Water section of our recently concluded free autumn webinar series ‘The NOW and NEXT of LCA’.

The webinar titled ‘Water footprinting techniques’ was delivered by Prof. Sarah McLaren on 4th May. Sarah identified the key issues to be addressed in assessing both types of water footprint, and how the techniques can be used to improve the environmental profile of companies and their products.

Professor Sarah McLaren is Director of the New Zealand Life Cycle Management Centre (NZLCM Centre), and Professor in Life Cycle Management at Massey University, New Zealand (NZ). Her research focuses on development and application of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and related approaches such as environmental footprinting, the circular economy, planetary boundaries, and industrial ecology.

Sarah has promoted uptake of Life Cycle Management in New Zealand as a founding Committee member of the Life Cycle Association of New Zealand (LCANZ) and member of the Technical Advisory Group of the Australasian Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) Programme. She has served on the Office of the Prime Minister’s Chief Science Advisor’s Rethinking Plastics Panel, Ministry for the Environment’s Planetary Boundaries NZ Advisory Board, and represented NZ on the ISO Water Footprint Working Group. She works with organisations such as the Building Research Association of New Zealand (BRANZ), BEACON Bioeconomy Research Centre Ireland, and the NZ Food Awards to translate Life Cycle Management into practical action.
