Session Abstract

Vision for the future of sustainability assessment and management.

Past endeavours are a solid foundation but will lead to failure of mankind, unless we demonstrate leadership with clear focus on decision making speed, scalability and collaboration across disciplines.

Beginning with the state of LCA today, Jan’s speech will lay out a vision for the future of sustainability assessment and management.

Current best practices and initiatives such as Product Environmental Footprints (PEF), Circular Economy, Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) and building standards will be considered in the context of the changes necessary for a sustainable future. Long-term and approaching challenges will be addressed and a path forward drawn, including methodological and data solutions addressing commercial realities and stakeholder expectations in terms of transparent information and communication.

The keynote will link the current state of LCA to its future applications in the wide realm of sustainability, including combinations with non-LCA approaches. Jan will reference current developments to illustrate how new generations of practitioners and innovators make the most of the knowledge base in major applications – while having fun, driving business value, and changing the world!
