Session Abstract

How DSM is using LCA to implement circular economy.

The Circular Economy is a promising route for improved product sustainability as it is being embraced by many companies. However, Circular Economy goes far beyond recycling and it can be daunting for companies to actually integrate circularity in their strategy. The LCA department plays a crucial role toward effectively achieving the CE goals.

DSM has a story of using LCA to integrate sustainability, and is well positioned in the middle of the value chain to steer stakeholders, materials and design. This unique position, along with the collaborative interaction between LCA and other departments, allowed DSM to integrate CE in their agenda.

In this session, Henk-Jan Udding from DSM will share his experiences on how LCA helped DSM integrate CE, by making choices, with product design, development, and other aspects. From challenges, to approaches, to integration; come and learn from DSM’s journey and see how LCA can reinforce CE.
