LCA Survey

The LCA survey by Bluehorse Associates has just been released. Over 100 LCA practitioners from all over the world participated in the survey. It covers a range of experiences in LCA as well as both product and process-based LCA. It also covers a wide range of sectors, particularly agriculture and food & drink. The survey contains a number of very interesting findings, including the surprising statistic that only 28% of practitioners are always asked to work to an LCA standard and only 5% are always peer reviewed. Carbon is also asked for in 100% of LCAs and therefore the need to adhere to a standard is even more critical in ICARB’s view. These are yet more examples of ICARB’s key drivers for bringing sectors and fellow practitioners together to develop standardised carbon accounting in a coherent, cross-disciplinary form.

Countries represented in the survey:
Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Scotland, Serbia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, UK, USA
