Submit your abstracts regarding LCA, EPD and Public Procurement for LCM 2017 (extended deadline)

LCM 2017

The Secretariat will be represented as one of the chairs at a session at the LCM 2017 conference held in Luxembourg in September 2017. The topic of the session will be:

Using LCA and EPD in Public Procurement within the construction section

Life Cycle Assessment and Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) have long been pointed to as tools to be used in green public procurement (GPP), but doing so in practice is challenging. How can such information be requested without breaking some of the general principles for public procurement, for example non-discrimination and transparency? EPDs are now widely used within the construction sector to provide environmental information; however using EPDs in GPP is still not common and there is a need to share experiences and practices. This session should include six shorter presentations providing different perspectives on this issue and feature a panel discussion.

 

The deadline for abstracts is open until January 15th. For more information and to submit an abstract, see the LCM 2017 website.
