Session 5.1: Levels: Social LCA applications for SME’s
3:45pm - 5:15pm
Session Chair: Arthur Wolde Session Chair: Mark Goedkoop
Social LCA might have the image of being complex and resource intensive, due to the novelty of the field and challenges with regards to data collection. For large companies this might not be a barrier for adoption, but if we want to leave no one behind in adopting Social LCA, we should also make sure that social LCA can be used and applied by SME’s. This session invites contributions that describe how social LCA can be more suitable for SME’s, how SME’s are currently assessing social impacts, how data can become more accessible for these companies, how to develop approaches to streamline S-LCA also through (partial) automation and how we can make sure that social LCA is also a valuable tool for SME’s.
