The 22nd SETAC Europe LCA Case Study Symposium will be one of this year’s essential events for the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) community, gathering experts, practitioners, scientists, and policymakers from business, academia, government and NGOs.
The 22nd edition of this classic LCA conference will be held from 20-22 September 2016 in the gracefully Mediterranean city of Montpellier in Southern France and is co-organised by SETAC Europe and the two industrial chairs on LCA “ELSA-PACT”/Irstea (France) and CIRAIG (Canada).


With the overarching theme of Life Cycle Innovation for the Transition to a Sustainable Society the scientific programme was designed to provide every opportunity to share and learn about business practice, application experiences and challenges, LCA’s increasing role in governance, and the latest developments in methodology and teaching of LCA.

Over 170 abstracts were submitted from more than 20 countries on three continents, resulting in more than 120 oral presentations scheduled in 17 sessions covering the LCA aspects of subjects like emerging technologies, agriculture, buildings, water, transport, energy supply and storage, recycling, PEF, ecodesign, resource management, LCA of large-scale systems like cities or regions, life cycle management, policy evaluation, LCIA modelling, uncertainty, teaching LCA, or social LCA and life cycle sustainability assessment.

The conference programme is complemented by two invited keynote speakers, Prof. Emer. Roland Clift from University of Surrey, UK and Dr. David Pennington from the European Commission. Conference-events include two evenings of social gathering and a water footprint workshop on the new AWARE method recommended by UNEP-SETAC and the PEF / ILCD guidelines. 

Sustainability is at the heart of the event and significant efforts have been implemented to make it as sustainable as possible.

We wish you a fruitful and enjoyable meeting!
