Co-Implementing Partners: 2.-0 LCA Consultants, PRé Consultants,

Co-Funding Partners: Life Cycle Initiative funding partners

Project Summary:

The objective of this project is to develop a clear link between the top-down process that led to the creation of the SDGs and all the bottom-up knowledge, data and methodology in the Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment area. The scope includes a range of options ranging from qualitative to screening approaches to fully quantified end-point metrics solutions. This link would allow companies to measure their contribution to the SDGs.

The project will develop an actionable and rational method for businesses and governments to integrate the SDGs into decision-making and progress monitoring and will therefore substantially help to streamline and coordinate action and increase efficiency in implementing the 2030 Agenda. The outcomes will also be useful for streamlining and harmonisation of sustainability reporting.
