We, at Edge, are excited to welcome our newest recruit, Dr. Joana Almeida. Originally hailing from Portugal, Joana specialises in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and has a PhD in Bioscience Engineering.
Joana is widely published in the fields of LCA, agriculture, bioenergy and carbon assessments. Her skills in these fields will strengthen Edge’s LCA offering as we continue to inform practical solutions that are tailored to our clients’ most significant social and environmental issues.
LCA is increasingly being integrated into a range of sustainability tools and solutions. Examples include:
- Recognition of LCA and LCA-based labels in building and infrastructure rating tools
- Decision-making and benchmarking of bioenergy sources
- Integration of LCA in sustainable procurement guidance
- Using LCA to inform industrial ecology strategies
Alongside Joana’s passion for sustainability is a love for travel and outdoor activities. She is excited about the possibility of balancing her client work with paddle-boarding at Manly beach during lunch-times.
