Precision measurements of b-hadron lifetimes are a key goal of the LHCb experiment. In the Bs0 sector, the measurement of the effective lifetimes for Bs0 mesons decaying to CP-odd, CP-even and flavour specific final states are essential for constraining the Bs0 mixing parameters, ΔΓs, the average width Γs and the CP-violating phase, φs. Measurements of b baryon lifetimes are also important to test theoretical models. We present the latest results from LHCb on these topics
