“I learned that life cycle thinking is fundamental to delivering a sustainable building. I also learned that with One Click, the optimization process is almost ‘easy’ and facilitates good collaboration. Felt that the whole circularity piece and being able to measure that is also very powerful. Thanks for such a great course and for sharing such great insights!”

Lucienne Mosquera (Hotel Life Cycle | Footprint | Assessment | Costing | Strategy)

“Thank you to the team for putting together this summer school. The team showed us as much as they could about the One Click LCA tool and I agree that it is indeed very versatile and user-friendly. Thank you for bringing clarity to the difference between the two assessment methods for LCI data characterization -TRACI & CML. That is one of my takeaways from the introductory sessions. Now, we keep working and building on what we learned.”

Tunde Okeowo (Tech IOSH, Public Health at HarvardX)

“Thank you very much for a wonderful summer school course. That was very helpful for my Ph.D. research. I have learned a lot and broadened my knowledge in LCA and how we can optimize carbon reduction for buildings. Looking forward to attending other training courses in the future if any.”

Thao Bui (Alice) (Ph.D. Candidate at Massey University)

“Thanks so much for this great summer school course. It was my first time learning about this subject and using any tools for embodied carbon. Definitely learned a lot and can't wait until LCA becomes a mandatory requirement in North America and Asia. Embodied energy really is the next big thing we need to be focusing on, for us to build and have a better future. Many thanks, again.”

April Wang (Green Building Strategist at Recollective Consulting)
