LCA in Reality: From Data to Decisions

DATE: June 22, 2023

TIME: 10:00am - 11:00am ET

PRESENTER: Dr. Kiyotada Hayashi


Life cycle assessment (LCA) has become an essential tool in facilitating the sustainability of our society. However, certain issues, such as handling tradeoffs and understanding which impacts are most important, sometimes appear vague and elusive and still need to be resolved. Fortunately, decision analysis, a science of decision making, can provide a clearer perspective of those issues, ranging from data gaps in life cycle inventory analysis to weighting in life cycle impact assessment. This webinar exemplifies how the decision-analytic approach provides remedies and prescriptions to improve our LCA practices.


Join us in this Brown Bag Webinar focused on decision support by EarthShift Global’s Senior Sustainability Advisor and Asian Manager, Dr. Kiyotada Hayashi.

Dr. Hayashi studied multicriteria decision analysis for many years prior to his application of that learning to LCA.

Registration for and recordings of the Brown Bag Webinars can be found here.
