LCSA for SMEs and Trade associations
28th November 2023, 11 – 12:30 CET
The EU-founded ORIENTING project has developed a methodology for comprehensive life-cycle sustainability assessment of products applicable to any kind of company, despite differences in size and expertise.
As confirmed also during our first workshop with SMEs, we know that sustainability assessment for many companies might be considered a complex task. For this reason, its application requires a flexible methodological approach, able to take into account the diversity of users’ needs and to improve company’s sustainability awareness step by step. It is precisely on this principle that the LCSA methodology developed in ORIENTING is based.
So, how does this LCSA methodology apply to organisations with different size and expertise? What benefits does it offer and how does it match with all the other policy initiatives of the European Green Deal?
These are the topics that will be discussed during the second workshop “Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment for SMEs and Trade associations”, which will be held on Tuesday, November 28, 11 a.m. to 12:30 CET.
The event is aimed at all SMEs and trade associations interested in understanding how to apply the ORIENTING’s LCSA methodology to their own reality and sector. It will also be an opportunity to receive an overview of key European policy initiatives and the role an LCSA methodology can play in the context of the European Green Deal, from the perspective of the three main categories of the regulatory landscape: product design, governance, and transparency/communication. A policy officer from the European Commission is invited to present these initiatives to participants.
The workshop is divided into two parts:
- Part one: introduction to the LCSA methodology for SMEs and its role in the framework of key European policy initiatives on sustainability.
- Part two: panel discussion on the topics of LCSA methodology that will engage all participants and the experts.
If you are an SME, by joining us on November 28th at 11 a.m. you will:
- Find out how to apply the ORIENTING’s LCSA methodology to your own company.
- Receive an overview of key European policy initiatives on sustainability.
- Clarify all your doubts and curiosities with direct questions to the experts during the panel discussion.
Regarding this last point, in anticipation of the event, we strongly encourage all those who plan to attend to send us any doubts or questions about the topics we will cover in the workshop via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to trying to answer all your questions, the most popular ones will also be the basis for a shared discussion during the panel discussion. We know the topics may be new to some of you, so don’t be afraid to ask!
Priority will be given to SMEs and trade associations to which this event is dedicated. We invite everyone to connect a few minutes before the event.
