Preferred Term:

life cycle thinking

LCT is a concept that integrates existing consumption and production strategies, preventing a piece-meal approach. LCT and other approaches can be used to improve the way we think about problem solving and use available information. Life cycle approaches help avoid shifting problems from one life cycle stage to another, from one geographic area to another and from one environmental medium (air, water, soil) to another.
