As climate change concerns increase, relevant stakeholders are pushing companies more than ever before to take responsibility to account for and reduce the impacts of their products. This is not just within a company’s operations, but across the entire life cycle. How to account for these impacts accurately and how transparency can be improved to allow for comparable benchmarking are the key issues that need to be addressed.
As well as this, companies must also look at how different initiatives affect their bottom line. When resources are limited, but there is potential for strong economic growth where should you focus your efforts now and where should you focus your efforts in the future? Businesses must assess where their greatest impacts are and how they can prioritize those efforts to most effectively reduce their social and environmental impacts. Leading companies, NGO’s and policy makers will answer all of these questions in the LCA Sustainable Supply Chain USA 2010.
