About ICSoLCA 2021

Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) is one important program of United Nation for Environment Protection (UNEP) which encourages all process steps from producers to consumers more sustain and have deep insight on environmental issues. It should be an international cooperative program for all countries in the world and has been already included in Sustainable Development Goals and Post-2015. At moment some programs have been conducted for achieving some objectives such as increasing resource efficiency and decouple economic growth from environmental degradation, creating decent jobs and contributing to poverty eradication and shared prosperity (UNEP, 2015).

Within 10 Years Program of SCPs, some suitable programs are launched by UNEP such as Sustainable Public Procurement, Sustainable Tourism including Ecotourism, Sustainable Lifestyle and Education, Sustainable Buildings and Construction, Consumer Information and Sustainable Food Systems. Most of SCP programs are supported by implementation Life Cycle Assessment as basic thinking and calculation. Green manufacturing becomes more popular among the producers, because they have to fulfill the consumer needs and requirements, which are influenced by environment issues. The products become more efficient in using energy, and they are recyclable and easy to handle. The services could not be ignored, they play important roles for making people understand about new paradigm in the world and how they use natural resources wisely.

Global trade at moment grows faster and consumers have more benefit on these condition. Without any consideration on environmental impacts it can cause some ecological bad effect, for example more pollution releases on the environment due to transportation and production, using raw material was not controlled, etc. The trading of agro- and seafood products becomes more attractive and challenge, because Indonesia is one of agro- and fish producer and some of them are exported, which must fulfill the requirements including ecological ones.

For further discussion and improvement the understanding on Life Cycle Assessment for supporting Sustainable Consumption and Production Programs the 5th ILCA SEMINAR ON LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT will be conducted to cover those issues.
