This paper presents a summary of the session “Implementation and management of life cycle approaches in business—challenges, opportunities, business learnings and best practice”. In the session, the audience got the opportunity to listen to examples from industry and ways to include life cycle approaches in their business decision making processes. The audience also attended presentations where learnings from the environmental footprint process were discussed. The conclusions from the presentations and the final panel discussion can be summarized in some key messages. To succeed we need to go together and that is why harmonization of e.g. methods and regulations are important. As a basis when developing the way forward it was concluded that the life cycle approach is an important tool.
