The European process industries recognise that assessment of sustainability is an essential component of their business management. As such, many sustainability indicators, tools and methodologies already exist. However, these vary widely in their sophistication, applicability, maturity and usability thereby limiting broad cross-sectoral implementation.
Consequently, three projects have recently been funded through the Horizon 2020 SPIRE Public-Private-Partnership to coordinate studies of current approaches. The projects resulted from the SPIRE-4 call 'Methodologies, tools and indicators for cross-sectorial sustainability assessment of energy and resource efficient solutions in the process industry'.
The three projects are: STYLE - Sustainability Toolkit for easy Life-cycle Evaluation, SAMT - Sustainability Assessment methods and tools to support decision-making in the process industries, MEASURE - Metrics for Sustainability Assessment in European Process Industries.
The projects are keen to get involvement from a wide range of stakeholders, including:
If you are interested in being a stakeholder in the projects, or just to be kept informed of progress, please complete this short questionnaire by 6 March 2015. The responses to the questionnaire will inform a joint project workshop to be held at the end of March.
