Life Cycle Assessment & Product Environmental Footprint

High Level Information Day hosted by PlasticsEurope as part of the Energy Days Events organised across Europe during the European Sustainable Energy Week from 23 to 27 June 2014.

Life Cycle Assessment is increasingly referred to as an important tool to investigate the environmental impact of products and activities.The European Commission has recently developed the LCA based Environmental Footprint for the comparison of products and their sustainability performance on the market. The initiative is currently going through a 3 year experimental phase. 

Many industry sectors are familiar with LCA and environmental communications to their value chain and consumers. During the first session of this info day, attendees will discover best practices case studies by Volkswagen AG, a retailer, PlasticsEurope and two of its LCA consulting partners (DEKRA and denkstatt).

The second session will provide an overview of the European Commission Environmental Footprint followed by an early feedback by some industry sectors which are engaged in EF pilots: detergents, water supply pipes, paints, paper and steel industry.

Join us and register to this LCA & PEF Information Day to be held in Brussels on 24 June!
