FSLCI Joins ISO TC 207 / SC5

Today we are very happy to be able to inform you that the FSLCI has recently been accepted to become a liaison member of ISO TC 207 SC5 – the committee that deals with everything related to life cycle standards. In line with standard ISO guidelines, we will soon set up a specific FSLCI Committee dedicated to the involvement of our members in ISO processes.

Public Member Directory

PublicMembersMapWe would like to inform you that we have recently launched our public member directory! The decision to go public with our member directory is very much in line with our goal to help our members better connect among each other, but also with the life cycle community at large. Please note, while our members have access to everyone’s full profile, whether or not a profile and its fields are available to the public is up to our members.

New Non-Profit Membership Levels

In addition to our already existing membership levels for companies, we are happy to inform you that our Board of Directors recently decided to introduce a new membership category that is focused on non-profit organisations. The membership category has been set-up especially with research groups in mind, but is open to all non-profit organisations. Non-profit memberships are available in three different levels, which only differ by the number of included personal accounts. Review our new memberships for non-profits here!

Research Group Directory


We would like to inform you that we have developed a directory for research groups/institutes. We invite any research group to submit their information to be listed in the directory. The core idea is to provide students and researches with a better overview, who is actually doing research and or teaching life cycle methodologies. Much like with our member directory, our directory for research groups is build around a geographical map which lists all groups that have submitted their data.

FSLCI at Conferences around the World

While the summer break is coming closer, we look forward to a number of conferences in the second half of the year. We will be present at various conferences around the world with our small booth, presentations and a number of our members. Visit us for example here:

20. – 22.09 | SETAC Europe LCA Case Study Symposium 2016 in Montpellier, France
27. – 29.09 | LCA XVI in Charleston, USA
03. – 06.10. | EcoBalance in Kyoto, Japan
17. – 18.10. | ILCM 2016 in New Delhi, India
19. – 21.10. | LCA Food in Dublin, Ireland

Also, did you know? As part of our services for our members, FSLCI members can indicate their presence at conferences around the world on our global events calendar, thus supercharge their networking!
