BioBase4SME Workshop: LCA – wanted, needed, but truly understood?

December 7, 2017 @ 17:00 - 20:00 CET

We cordially invite you to the next CLIB forum event on LCA 7 December from 16:00 – 19:00. It will be held at Maxhaus, Schulstr. 11, 40213 Düsseldorf, DE.

Influenced by the discussions on climate change and the publication of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the desire for sustainability is also becoming more and more important for customers and brand owners. But how to measure sustainability? 

The current tool of choice to test the environmental impact of a product is life cycle assessment. The industry needs an instrument to confirm its competitiveness in this field; SMEs want to increase their attractiveness for the customer industries, which want to make their production more sustainable.

But what is meant by a LCA, what can it predict and where are restriction? The workshop is intended to provide an insight into the subject of LCA and to discuss its usefulness and limitations from various perspectives.
