Know What You Don’t Know: Untangling complexity in LCA, materials science, and sustainability
This is the first in our series of conversations with experts on sustainability topics in the apparel, footwear and consumer goods industries. In this session, material science experts will discuss the science of sustainability. They will explore the value, complexities, and limitations of life cycle analysis (LCA), how the science of LCA fits into the emerging discussions around emerging global regulatory requirements for the fashion industry, and how other industries are using LCA today. They will also discuss emerging methodologies and approaches that differ from LCA and how these fit into the broader picture of sustainability in the fashion industry.
