第3届政府间LCA合作国际研讨会 - 日程

已有 2371 次阅读 2014-4-10 17:01 |个人分类:行业动态|系统分类:博客资讯| 政策, 数据库合作

LCA正在世界范围内引起政府和政策制订的重视。

这个系列会议第1届是由欧盟发起的,原本的目的是支持欧盟产品环境足迹PEF,第2届由联合国环境署UNEP组织(见之前的博文)。这一届由美国环保署、农业部主办。会议主要讨论如何促进各国LCA数据库开发与合作、探讨LCA在政策中的应用。会议内容和日程如下。

这次我有两个报告:

1、介绍LCA数据库开发的基本概念和方法,主要是基于我们中国生命周期核心数据库(CLCD-China)的研发经验。

(没让Ecoinvent或GaBi来讲这个问题,也许是因为他们比较商业化,容易起争议。。。咦,这岂不是说我们的CLCD还不够商业化吗?膝盖中了一箭)。

2、另一个报告是关于如何将LCA方法与政策目标结合在一起,主要讲生命周期节能减排评价方法ECER。

不说了,接着赶报告。

Objective of the session: To identify key policy areas where LCapproaches and/or LCA as a tool generate tangible outcomes, and those in whichno success stories can be identified yet, as well as the features of the mostsuccessful examples in order to guide future applications. UNEP would like todraw a report summarizing these findings to support countries in implementingLC-inspired policies for SCP.

Guiding questions:

Ø  What was the specific use of LCA/ LC approachin the specific policy?

Ø  Has there been a measurable benefit (economicsavings; reduction in environmental impacts; etc.)?

Ø  What worked best? What was missing? What isbeing improved?
