Abstract: This guidance document provides waste policy makers, waste managers, and businesses with the background to Life Cycle Thinking (LCT) and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) approaches which can be implemented when considering C&D waste management options. The guidance does not seek to be comprehensive, but outlines the key principles that are useful to understand, and to signpost readers to further sources of information. It will provide you with an overview of what is Life Cycle Thinking, and how to implement this in practice. Implementation can be through tools and criteria that are developed from existing information or through more detailed quantified LCAs. As there are already well-established methods and sources of data to guide you in undertaking a life cycle assessment, his guidance will help you to identify these and to ensure the consistency, credibility and comparability of your results with those of others.
