Life cycle analysis and materials/energy forecasting models

Author: Ayres, Robert U. INSEAD Area: Economics and Political Science Series: Working Paper ; 93/60/EPS Publisher: Fontainebleau : INSEAD Centre for the Management of Environmental and Social Responsibility (CMER) 1993.Language: EnglishDescription: 27 p.Type of document: INSEAD Working Paper Online Access: Click here Abstract: Life cycle analysis (LCA) is an increasingly important tool for environmental policy, and even for industry. To choose the "greener" of two products or policies it is necessary to know the indirect as well as the direct contributions to environmental disturbance. Moreover, it is important to consider the future (downstream) fate of a product as well as its past, since every material product must eventually become a waste. Analysts are also increasingly interested in forecasting future materials/energy fluxes on regional and global scales, as a function of various economic growth and regulatory scenarios Next title: Life cycle analysis and materials/energy forecasting models (RV of 93/60/EPS) - Ayres, Robert U. - 1993 - INSEAD Working Paper
