Organizing sustainable product chains of a multinational corporation: life cycle management in practice
Paper in proceedings, 2013
LCM literature is mainly of a normative character and LCM is typically defined by holistic environmental focus, internal integration, collaboration with external actors and carried out with an abundant LCM-based toolbox.

It also shows how practitioners struggle with processes of internal integration and external collaboration.
