Sweco is joining the Swedish Life Cycle Center to develop the LCA field
Sweco is Europe’s leading consulting agency with combined knowledge in technology, environment and architecture. We plan and design the communities and cities of the future, and the results of our work are sustainable buildings, efficient infrastructure and access to clean water. Our engineers, architects and environmental experts collaborate to contribute to the development of a long-term sustainable society. With over 700 employees in Sweco Environment, we offer our customers the right expertise for every project.
How do you work with the life cycle perspective today?
Within Sweco there are several experts that work in different fields of LCA. Sweco performs complete LCAs and EPDs as well as projects where life cycle thinking is used in simplified applications, adjusted to the purpose of a given project. Recently performed LCA’s have focused on building materials (pre-fabricated walls, glass facades) and infrastructure, but projects have also been performed on textiles, chemicals and electronics.
How do you expect to benefit from becoming a partner in Swedish Life Cycle Center?
Sweco strives to expand as well as deepen our competence within LCA and seeks a platform for discussion of LCA-related topics. We want to work actively in the field, exchange knowledge and keep updated with the continuous development within the LCA field in Sweden. As the Swedish Life Cycle Center is the leading network within LCA in Sweden, we see that joining the center would help us to fulfil that ambition.
Welcome Sweco to Swedish Life Cycle Center and welcome Martyna Mikusinska, environmental scientist, to be part of the Board.
