LCA4Regions EU FLAG small 

LCA4Regions project partners gathered in Brussels to present their work and take stock of the situation regarding the use of life cycle analysis (LCA) in both policy planning and implementation, taking as an example the sustainable built environment. To mainstream the results of their work, the LCA4Regions partners are working on a roadmap that aims at providing recommendations on how to design effective and sustainable policies incorporating LCA methods. The discussions concluded that applying LCA to local policy making requires taking simplified steps, one of which is to find a common language between public authorities, research centres, and business sector. Circular economy principles in buildings was one of the examples discussed during a roundtable focusing on the sustainable built environment, a recurrent challenge for many public authorities. Once again, collaboration came out as key to reach sustainability in this sector and manage the energy transition.

Presentations from the event are available for download on LCA4Region’s event page.
