    Welcome Ali!

    Have you seen the web site for ISO 14001 set up by the technical committee ISO/TC 207/SC 1? They have made a page about lifecycle perspective.

    Auditors ask questions, but process people need to understand the concept or they might not know how to answer. Lifecycle perspective can mean:
    1) Changing from plastic to paper packaging. This is done in product design phase, and can affect end-of life (disposal).
    2) Changing configuration from round to square containers. This is also done in product design phase, and can have multiple layers of effects:
    2a) fitting more product into a carton, using less cardboard for packaging in preparation for shipment.
    2b) fitting more product into a carton, allowing more to be fit onto a truck for transport.
    2b)1) allowing more to be fit onto a truck for transport means less fuel used and less carbon into the atmosphere via truck exhaust
    2b)2) allowing more to be fit onto a truck for transport means less wear on the roads, meaning less frequent repairs requiring oil-based asphalt

    Enter the things your organization is doing into the note sheets and report, and you are reporting the results.

    I hope this helps!
