Anne-Marie Tillman

Professor at Chalmers, Technology Management and Economics, Environmental Systems Analysis

Anne-Marie Tillman leads research on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Life Cycle Management (LCM). LCA is the quantitative environmental assessment of product chains, whereas the closely related field LCM is about the governance of product chains towards enhanced environmental performance. She is one of two authors of the textbook The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to LCA. Anne-Marie Tillman is the director of the SKF-Chalmers University Technology Centre for Sustainability. She is a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences.
