PRé Sustainability joins LCMAust2015
The Australian Life Cycle Assessment Society (ALCAS) welcomes PRé Sustainability, as a Bronze Sponsor of LCM Australia 2015, The 9th Australian Conference on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Life Cycle Management (LCM).
At the forefront of sustainability for 25 years; PRé has built itself a worldwide reputation as a leader on impact assessments. With state-of-the-art methodology and tools, PRé puts the metrics behind sustainability to create business value.
SimaPro Share & Collect is a web based platform developed to facilitate fact-based sustainable decision making in an efficient, time-saving manner. Life cycle assessment (LCA) is the principal quantitative, science-based approach for determining the environmental impacts of products and services and for establishing concrete, actionable sustainability metrics.
“Sustainability needs to be based on facts, not intuition,” says Mark Goedkoop, Founder and CEO of PRé Sustainability. “Although LCA is one of the most robust, fact-based assessment methods in sustainability, it generates a lot of complex data. Transforming LCA results into business insights is a key challenge for every LCA expert.
“We need to build a bridge and make LCA benefits available to everybody without losing the robustness, transparency and scientific rigour. SimaPro Share & Collect can be that bridge,” states Goedkoop.
To be held in Melbourne from November 23 to 27, the ALCAS 2015 Conference Series will introduce a Building and Construction Conference AusBuildLCA and an Agriculture and Food Conference AgriFoodLCA for the first time. Tim will also present at AgriFoodLCA on the methodological aspects of including soil quality and on-farm pesticide emissions in LCA.
