The topic is Consequential LCA for decision support, and the programme consists of 6 plenum sessions on the topics detailed below, each composed of 7 oral presentations and around 45 minutes for a moderated plenum discussion.

  • Consequential LCI modelling

  • LCAs for due diligence, social responsibility, and environmental management
  • Model uncertainty and quality assurance in LCA
  • Challenges and tools for teaching consequential LCA and communication of results
  • Consequential modelling in policy-making, global Input-Output databases, and economic models

There will be no parallel sessions.

This year we will also test a new concept for poster sessions: Posters will be produced, reviewed and presented electronically; symposium participants can view posters in advance of the symposium and choose (by prioritised web-reservation) which posting presenters they wish to interact with during the posting sessions that takes place each day during the lunch break.
