When it comes to designing and managing sustainable operations, a key managerial undertaking is estimating the environmental impacts of processes and materials. Understanding and utilizing lifecycle assessment (LCA) data is a key skill that enables this type of analysis. It is important that students develop this skill. Using a case example from supply chain management, this article presents the essential concepts for faculty who are interested in helping students develop literacy in this area. Faculty can adapt the example to suit the particular objectives and circumstances of their classrooms..
