Session Abstract

Since its development, Social Life Cycle Assessment (S-LCA) has grown in maturity and is now a standalone methodology but it still faces a variety of methodological challenges. This session aims to address the methodological gaps in S-LCA and propose solutions and a way forward. Topics include social life cycle impact assessment, using S-LCA databases, software solutions to conduct S-LCA, and primary data collection. Presentations in this session aim to further the methodological development of S-LCA
