  • Published on December 11, 2020
10 years after, the 2009 UNEP Guidelines for Social Life Cycle Assessment (S-LCA) were revised by incorporating the experience gathered by researchers and practitioners. This 2020 edition looks at how to identify the social impacts and risks of products across the life cycle of a product and on how to identify and present positive impacts. Social organizational LCA (SO-LCA) strengthens S-LCA by providing an organizational perspective.
