The life cycle perspective described in four short films

​The Swedish Life Cycle Center (SLC), a competence center at the Department of Technology Management and Economics, launches four short films on life cycle thinking. The films give insight into the different uses of the life cycle perspective and life cycle analysis in partner organisations, and how collaboration is the key when moving forward.
​The films launched this week by the Swedish Life Cycle Center aim to explain the life cycle perspective in a broader context and increase understanding of the role of the life cycle perspective when making sustainable and long-term decisions. Three professionals with different perspectives, Eva Ahlner, Senior Advisor at Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, Helle Herk-Hansen, Head of Environment at Vattenfall, and Holger Wallbaum, Professor in Sustainable building at Architecture and Civil Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology, talk about the use of the life cycle perspective and LCA in their respective organizations. The films have been produced within the project Swedish Platform for the Life Cycle Perspective, funded by the Swedish Energy Agency and partners of the Swedish Life Cycle Center.
