Life Cycle Design (LCD) has quickly become the go-to method for defining sustainability in buildings in governments, green building councils and organisations around the world. It is considered best practice for good building design by the International Standard Organization (ISO 14044) and is a powerful methodology for ensuring genuinely sustainable and high performance outcomes.
In this one hour webinar eTool LCD Engineer and Regional Business Development Manager Henrique Mendonça will provide an overview of Life Cycle Design and explain five ways to add value to your services using LCD. Participants will learn from real life examples how it has been incorporated in different sectors and how key stakeholders have taken it on board.
Some of the topics that will be covered include:
- What is Life Cycle Design and the methodology
- The importance of green buildings and measuring building environmental performance
- Green Star projects – general overview
- LCA as a required part of ESD tender documentation
- Marketing and sales campaign
- eToolLCD software & services
“Life cycle assessment is not a fad, and will increasingly be understood as a smart business decision within a sustainable business model,” said Romily Madew, Chief Executive of the GBCA
