Life cycle thinking and assessments require knowledge on product supply chains, their use, as well as end-of-life waste management activities. This knowledge is facilitated by a range of private and public stakeholders in Europe, as well as globally. Availability and inter-operability are essential. The European Platform on LCA has therefore established formal agreements with the organisations listed below to help guide and facilitate its activities.
