The Life Cycle Initiative is preparing for the fourth session of the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA4) that will take place in Nairobi in March 2019, and which will address life cycle approaches as one of the focus areas to deliver “innovative solutions for environmental challenges and sustainable consumption and production”.

Since it was created in the Rio+20 conference back in 2012, the UNEA is the world’s highest-level decision-making body on the environment. With a universal membership, UNEA is now composed of 193 Member States.

Already in its second session, the participating governments adopted a resolution on Sustainable Consumption and Production (Resolution 2/8), which “Encourages all Member States, as well as other relevant stakeholders, to move towards sustainable consumption and production patterns, while taking into account national development priorities, policies and strategies, and to collaborate to promote life-cycle approaches” (among others).
