Understanding Life Cycle Assessment (5 part video series)

Narrated by Caroline Gaudreault, NCASI Program Manager – Sustainable Manufacturing and Climate
Despite the similar environmental characteristics of forest harvesting and manufacturing facilities operated by NCASI Member Companies in Canada to those operated by our U.S. Members, the different land ownership pattern and regulatory platform create unique needs for science and data to help Canadian companies cost-effectively meet their environment and sustainability goals. NCASI’s Canadian Program is grounded in a research program to address the specific needs of our Canadian Member Companies.
NCASI U.S. Member Companies represent more than 90% of the paper and paperboard produced, nearly 70% of the wood panels produced, and more than half of industrial timberland acreage in the United States. In 2002, NCASI opened an office for Canadian operations in Montreal, and now has 33 Canadian Member Companies.
Sustaining Member Companies include consulting firms, engineering firms, and analytical testing laboratories that provide environmental services to NCASI Member Companies.Download Membership Prospectus
