Webinar: Towards increased impact of life cycle information

Date:Wednesday, 21 November, 2018 Time:10:00 - 11:00

Emma Rex shares results from the recently completed research project Adapted decision support for increased energy efficiency in value chains.

Join this webinar if you are curious about how to work for life cycle information to gain importance in the operational activities; if you want to learn more about how to implement life cycle information with large impact on decisions. This is also a perfect occasion to discuss your experience with other professionals.


Many businesses of today now recognize the need for a life cycle perspective to guide company actions, in the selection of suppliers, in the strategy of new product ranges, and, in what information is chosen to be highlighted to the customers. However, while availability of data and understanding of the life cycle concept as such continues to grow, there is still inertia in life cycle information having practical implications on decisions and actions throughout the everyday work in the company.

This seminar presents results from a project aimed at a better understanding of companies’ internal uses of life cycle information. Examples of barriers and enablers for increased impact of life cycle information are given, and a process to ease implementation throughout the company is discussed.

There will be time for questions and discussion after the presentation.
