The draft LCSA methodology of ORIENTING will soon be ready for public consultation

Timeline ORIENTING methodology

ORIENTING is working on the development of a robust, operational and transparent Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment (LCSA) methodology, applicable by users with different background and expertise for different decision-making contexts.  

A draft version of the LCSA methodology will be ready in May, and it will contain principles, overarching structure and guidance, with a particular emphasis on the goal and scope definition of an LCSA study.
