Online: LCA Discussion Forum on LCA in the National Research Programme NRP 73 «Sustainable Economy»

The 74th LCA Discussion Forum will show the diversity of life cycle based approaches applied within the NRP 73.

The growing global economy relies on unsustainably sourced and used natural resources to produce goods and deliver services. In order to generate scientific knowledge about a sustainable Swiss economy, the National Research Programme (NRP) 73 was launched. It aims to provide a holistic perspective including environmental, economic and societal implications along the whole value chain and while also including the Sustainable Development Goals of Agenda 2030.

The Discussion Forum gives an opportunity for representatives from economy and academia to discuss the role of life cycle thinking and LCA results in various economic sectors relevant for the NRP 73, including construction, mobility, health, nutrition as well as sustainable behavior of different stakeholders.

The research projects within the NRP 73 not only focus on establishing the knowledge base, but also aim at analyzing the effects of measures and instruments as well as applying life cycle management in the Swiss economy.

The 74th LCA Discussion Forum will show the diversity of life cycle based approaches applied within the NRP 73 and address the following overarching issues:

  • How can decision-makers use life cycle based approaches to boost sustainable decisions?
  • Which life cycle based approaches are best suited to reveal opportunities and risks for sustainability within the different economic sectors?
  • Which instruments are most useful for combining environmental, economic and societal aims?
