Pre-Conference Workshop: Understanding the Environmental Consequences of an Action: Consequential Approaches (4 CEUs)

Dr. Sangwon Suh

September 26, 2016, 1PM - 4PM at the Francis Marion Hotel, Charleston, SC

Workshop Description: When making decisions aiming at reducing the environmental impacts of a firm, organization, product system or a community, it is important to understand what course of consequences would potentially follow to materialize the goal. The difficulty of modeling the consequences of a decision lies on the fact that such decisions may shift the framework conditions under which the society favors certain production-consumption behavior. This course will review available models in the literature on consequential LCA, and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each. We will use a few case studies such as dietary shifts and introduction of a new technology in the market. Understanding uncertainty in consequential approaches and the concept of propagating tree will be discussed.
