Nathan Ayer, Senior Sustainability Advisor, EarthShift Global

Life cycle thinking has a critical role to play in the transition to net zero emissions by ensuring that measures taken to reduce GHG emissions are effective.  In this webinar, life cycle assessment (LCA) practitioner, Nathan Ayer from EarthShift Global, will share examples of where the application of life cycle thinking will be particularly important:  1) evaluating the GHG emissions of decarbonization measures that rely on fuel switching, 2) characterizing the GHG reduction potential of emerging technologies, such as carbon capture and storage, 3) ensuring quality criteria and proper accounting rules for carbon offset programs, and 4) characterizing the multi-dimensional environmental impacts of decarbonization measures.

The Net Zero Atlantic webinar series is hosted in Zoom.
