UNEP DTIE SCP Branch: Life Cycle & Resource Management
Life Cycle & Resource Management
Life Cycle Thinking
Life Cycle Thinking is essential to sustainable consumption and production. It is about going beyond the traditional focus on production sites and manufacturing processes so that the environmental, social, and economic impact of a product over its entire life cycle, including the consumption and end of use phase, is taken into account. UNEP’s work to promote life cycle thinking is spearheaded by the UNEP/ SETAC Life Cycle Initiative.
