Fifth International Seminar on Social Life Cycle Assessment
June 13, 2016
13 June 2016
This fifth international seminar in Social LCA follows events held in Copenhagen, Denmark (2010), Montpellier, France (2011), Montreal, Canada (2013) and Montpellier, France (2014). As the first time the seminar will take place in United States, it represents a unique opportunity to communicate, disseminate, and discuss Social Life Cycle Assessment in this geography. The number of participants has grown steadily in each of the international seminars, and we are expecting this to hold true again in 2016, with over 250 participants anticipated.
The seminar theme, “Moving markets on social sustainability,” aims to foster a synergy between the worlds of research and business. It provides a forum to exchange and discuss advances in social life cycle assessment.
The International Seminar in Social LCA is the largest event in this field, and the only one that focuses specifically on quantitative and systemic assessment of social impacts and progress in supply chains and product life cycles. This means that attendees leave with an increased understanding of the full range of pertinent issues and an increased ability to be change agents in their industry.
