We are pleased to announce that two webinars will be organised to discuss how to use life cycle analysis tools to improve resource efficiency and sustainable consumption and production patterns through the case of Peru. Life cycle analysis is a powerful methodology for consumer information providing robust data to take inform decisions whether you are a policy maker, company or individual. The Peruvian LCA Network will present the input-output calculator to assess environmental impacts and PERU LCA.

Objectives

Two webinars will be organised to share the main results of the Peru LCA project.

PERU LCA is the national life cycle assessment data base of Peru. This tool has been developed with the support of the UN Environment through the Consumer Information programme and the Life Cycle Initiative and funded by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety (BMU) of Germany and the European Union.

Impact and Results

With this database Peru become a regional leader on LCA providing open data in key strategic sector such us energy or waste. This is a join effort of the Ministry of Environment and the Peruvian LCA Network.

This database will help policy makers, private sector and academia to integrate LCA methodologies and take into consideration a life cycle approach.

Furthermore, PERU LCA includes a calculator that uses the national economic input output matrix to calculate the carbon footprint and water consumption in key economic sectors of Peru.

Next steps and how to get involved

We would like to invite you to attend the training - or it would be great if you could please circulate this opportunity amongst colleagues of yours that could be potentially interested in this activity.
