The environmental conservation and management is one of the key concerns in the development agenda of all countries who wish to achieve the sustainable development. Awareness on environmental issues is therefore a prime requirement in every development activity. Accordingly the environmental performance of products and processes has become a key issue which industries and businesses are compelled to assess on how their activities affect the environment. Most of the industrialists are interested in practicing environmental management techniques as it provides many benefits to the firm other than environmental conservation. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is one such tool which assesses and analyzes the entire process of a product by providing information on the resource use and pollution. This research on Life Cycle Assessment of a ceramic tile revealed that findings are more or less similar to the many research conducted on the same area.
