Session Abstract

Circular Economy (CE) is a concept that has gained some significant traction for some years, both on the policy and the industrial levels. It helps further structure Sustainability strategies and initiatives. It can be described as an organizational principle which aims at evolving from the current linear economic model – where resources are extracted, manufactured, consumed and wasted – to an economic model which values resource efficiency at every stage of the value chain and enables the biodiversity protection, as well as a development suitable for the well-being of individuals. From the definition of a CE strategy to the implementation of action plans, as well as for the development of new business models in this field, processes, indicators and tools are necessary to support decision-making. LCM approaches and expertise are thus suitable to ensure the Sustainability performance of decision-making. In this session panel, speakers from companies, institutions and academia will present some examples of LCM approaches (e.g. impact and risk assessment methods, eco-design, recycling, etc.), but also collaborative tools, in support of CE objectives.
