Our experts are delighted to guide you through the landscape of LCA, corporate footprinting, ecolabeling, international and North American 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 solid understanding of environmental footprinting context and methodology, and walk away with strengthened skills in life cycle thinking and action to further develop your business goals and drive towards a more sustainable future.
