Life cycle thinking has emerged as a key approach in many industries for optimization, efficiency, marketing and strategic planning. Globally the use of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) as a tool for quantifying and delivering information about the environmental performance of products, processes, and services has developed significantly. The UN FAO, UNEP, and the European Commission are actively developing harmonized methodologies with a current focus on food products driven by a number of directives and policies. Companies all over the world with an interest in food and agriculture are now using LCA as part of their internal management, B2B and consumer communications.

The focus of LCAFood conferences, that have been organised since 1996, has always been on technical issues relevent to the food and agriculture, on disseminating cutting edge research and case studies. Since its inception there has been a trend towards facilitating the LCAFood community to gain a better understanding of how and why to use LCA to address the most important social issue facing mankind – sustianable and secure food supply for a growning global populaiton. To this end, the focus of the conference to be held in Dublin will be “Putting LCA into Practise” with the intention of facilitating dialog and communication between the various stakeholders involved in LCAFood
