This book is an international collaborative effort among a multi-disciplinary group of researchers, whose common thread is their expertise on life cycle approaches (engineers, product managers, anthropologists, environmental consultants, designers, financiers). It has been reviewed at the international level by representatives from organizations such as : Accountability International (AI), Consumers International (CI), Fair Labor Association (FLA), Fair Trade Advocacy Office (FTAO), International Consumer Research & Testing Ltd (ICRT), International Labour Office (ILO), International Organization of Employers (IOE), International Social and Environmental Accreditation and Labelling Alliance (ISEAL), International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), US International Bureau of Labor Affairs (ILAB), World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).

It is the first international publication addressing social and socio-economic aspects and their inclusion in a LCA complementing environmental LCA and Life Cycle Costing, and therefore seeking to contribute to a more comprehensive assessment of goods and services within the context of sustainable development.
