Students: Our structured internships in basic system analysis enable recognition of ecopositives, life cycle thinking plus supply chain and life cycle inventory (LCI) modelling. Student learn about ISO Quality and Environmental Management Systems (EMS), Life Cycle Analysis (LCA Reports), Product Category Rules (PCR)s and Environmental Product Declarations (EPD)s.
Interns: You can learn benefit analysis, impact assessment and balanced reporting while practicing implementing standards, quality methods and compiling LCI, LCA, PCRs and EPDs.
Practitioners: Share expertise and contributions to a rapidly developing ecopositive assessment field. We engage industry stakeholders, mentors and elders to catalyse LCA project pathways. Advice is shared on systems, supply chains, market development, trouble shooting, process improvement, LCT, LCI modelling, ecolabelling, EPDs, LCA, PCRs and Reviewer Reports. Training is face to face.
Business & Project Teams: Our support is designed to fit client needs. We assess and help clarify your project and product life cycle eco-hot-spots and competitive advantages. Teams can use this knowledge for rapid improvement of organisational economic, environmental and social profiles. This occurs via on-line engagement, coursework, webinars and face-to face meetings at work or after hours at breakfast, day or weekend retreats.
Consumers: Our tools can empower your ethically preferable purchasing and enable persuasive communication as well as facilitate stakeholder engagement.
Research Institutions: We enable project team's LCA tool access, practice and opportunity to review, create and audit quality data. Our help is to enable your creation and dissemination of accessible datasets for private and public use. We facilitate ideation retreats for innovation, writing and project breakthroughs across strategic planning, design, innovation, development and market delivery. These are to facilitate recording and publishing of balanced sustainability reporting, ecolabelling and EPD content.
Educators: We enhance student analytical capacity, systems thinking and practice outcomes. Institutions may establish and integrate ecopositive sustainability assessment curriculum across courses in communications, design, IT, business, science, management, journalism, engineering and marketing. Meaningful practice examples, pedagogy, resource packages and assessment methods are delivered face to face or virtually.
Professional Associations:LCADesignSudio offers sustainability pedagogy and curriculum development for science, architecture, management, industrial, design, business and accounting groups. CPD modules enhance systems thinking and SWOT analysis for outcomes. It also provides constructive feedback on CPD and suggests workable improvement. Our CPD coursework is to enable professional to seek best and avoid worst practice in development, design and practice.
