DF 75 (Jubilee DF) — Life Cycle Thinking = Lower Footprint? – Or: Is LCA relevant?
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the jubilee forum is moved to 2021.
It shall take place as a physical meeting at a later date. It will be assigned a new DF number.
Cancelled date: Monday & Tuesday, September 14 & 15, 2020 (2 day jubilee forum), Zürich
If we compare the necessary large transformations (e.g. in GHG reductions, or land use patterns) with common LCAs, the question arises: Did LCA hitherto support big decisions and changes? Or are we using LCA mostly for minuscule optimizations? We're eagerly awaiting your abstracts for presentations and posters which answer one (or many) of these questions:
• How much does (did) LCA really help in reducing pressure on the environment?
• Which important decisions were based on LC thinking and analysis?
• How can LCA become more effective for big issues?
See also the Jubilee Forum DF 75 Flyer.
Call for Abstract closed.
