About the course

For the North American market, we are organizing a special online course in which we will provide you with the knowledge and tools to unlock the potential of environmental footprinting and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) in agri-food production.

Throughout the course, you will learn more about the concepts of LCA, corporate footprinting, ecolabeling; international and US market developments, standards and policies for footprinting and LCA in particular; and technical aspects of footprinting. Moreover, in our specialist sessions, you will deep dive into crop cultivation, animal farming systems, and food databases, including how to define healthy and sustainable foods and diets.

After the course, you will have a good understanding of the environmental footprinting context and methodology, and strengthened skills in life cycle thinking and action to further develop your business goals and drive towards a more sustainable future.
