The LCM concept can be considered as a framework that must be integrated at all levels of an organisation, effectively in research and development, product design, marketing, purchasing, strategic planning, corporate reporting, and management. The LCM concept is an integrated system for improving operations, products and services, ensuring information and decisions from a life cycle perspective and contribute to improve decision-making. A life cycle framework addresses improvement to technological, economic, environmental and social aspects of an organisation and the goods and services it provides. Organisations use LCM frameworks to explicitly identify, document, and communicate their business strategy and to chart a course from this strategy toward a more sustainable firm.
The Life Cycle Management conference series is the leading forum worldwide bringing together 600+ scholars and practitioners from 40+ countries working in industry, academia and public institutions in the domain of life cycle sustainability and circular economy. It takes place every second year, each time organised by a leading research institution and industry in the domain.
The conference thread will be „Towards sustainable future – current challenges and prospects in Life Cycle Management”. It will contain four theme lines, covering four important topics: Sustainable Products, Technologies, Organizations and Markets. See more details here: Programme.
