INVITATION: Lecture and Networking Event
Life Cycle Assessment for Product Design: Building Products and Materials
Tuesday, April 24th
White Stag Block Event Room, 70 NW Couch St., Portland
Green Product Design Network members are invited to hear about current issues in environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) for building products and materials from Philip White, Industrial Design, Arizona State University. Introductions, food and conversation to follow.
Guests are invited to submit a slide to introduce their product, company, research topic, or research need following the lecture. This is a chance for companies with an interest in performing an LCA or using LCA to evaluate products or supply chain to connect to folks with complementary needs or resources to offer. Our hope is that all attendees will gain some new knowledge about LCA in design, manufacturing, and marketing and will make connections with others in the LCA and building products communities.
This event is hosted by the University of Oregon Green Product Design Network with support from Oregon BEST and PDX Design Forum.
