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 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.
