About this book

Although life cycle costing is touted as one of the three pillars of sustainability, few texts have explored the environmental side of such assessments. Defining and illustrating this rapidly growing field, this book provides the fundamental basis on which to establish a clear methodology in this area. The editors present the link between life cycle costing and life cycle assessment. Exploring public, private, and societal options, the text also includes several case studies and explains all components of the method with reference to a single example. Simply put, this book serves as a teaching tool that responds to a current need for clarification and benchmarks of life cycle costing.
