Life cycle management (LCM) is an important framework with a powerful toolbox for the promotion of more sustainable goods, services, and processes. It is essential for implementing sustainable development and life cycle approaches. LCM, sometimes also termed Product Stewardship, is an approach to integrate sustainability into day-to-day as well as strategic decision-making.
The LCM2007 conference aims to facilitate exchange of experience and know-how between researchers, academics, and professionals from industrial enterprises and public institutions working on the application and implementation of life cycle approaches for sustainability as well as on the development of associated tools and methods. Application-oriented and scientific LCM approaches will be presented and discussed.
