6th International Conference on Social Life Cycle Assessment

September 10 - September 12

10-12 September 2018

“Social LCA : People and Places for Partnership” – 6th International Conference on Social Life Cycle Assessment (S-LCA)

The University “G. d’Annunzio” of Pescara-Chieti, in collaboration with Ecoinnovazione srl,  a spin-off of ENEA, is organising the 6th International Conference on Social Life Cycle Assessment (S-LCA). The conference will be held in Pescara, Italy, on 10-12 September 2018.

The overarching theme of the conference is “Social LCA : People and Places for Partnership”.

S-LCA can help to evaluate the social aspects of products in the framework of sustainability. This can represent a managerial tool for the evaluation of the stakeholders. Indeed, it is not the dimension of an organisation that is of importance, but it is the density of the linkages it can establish with the stakeholders, in order for positive social effects to be created and for synergies to be effectively communicated. Assessing social impacts is even more significant also in business and public policy contexts.
