DF 59 — National environmental footprints and planetary boundaries: From methodology to policy implementation.
Friday, June 12th, 2015, Zürich (in English).
The concept of environmental planetary boundaries published in the scientific literature receives a growing interest by governments. Even companies are starting to use this concept in their environmental policy. Life cycle assessment (LCA) seems to be a promising partner of the planetary boundary concepts quantifying consumption based environmental impacts.
This LCA forum contributes to bringing together national environmental footprinting and environmental planetary boundary concepts (an introduction to the concept of planetary boundaries and their application can be found at www.stockholmresilience.org/planetary-boundaries).
