Pilot project on using the Handbook for simplified Impact Valuations
Impact Valuation aims to measure the sustainability performance of a product or intervention in monetary terms (see for instance this blog post). This allows the grouping of many different impacts (e.g. environmental and social impacts). Financial impacts are also much easier to understand than complex scientific indicators for a non-expert audience. Impact valuation studies should not replace comprehensive assessments, but can complement them, and facilitate communication.
The Roundtable participated together with CIRAIG in a pilot to investigate the use of the Handbook for impact valuations.
On this topic a presentation was given during the S-LCA Conference was given. Please view the video here:
