PRé at the Life Cycle Innovation Conference 2018

Join us at the Life Cycle Innovation Conference in Berlin on August 29-31, where Eric Mieras, Managing Director of PRé, will give a presentation about scaling up the use of life cycle assessment through technology.

July 23, 2018

The Life Cycle Innovation Conference 2018 in Berlin will bring together a diverse crowd of change-makers, innovators, entrepreneurs, researchers, practitioners and decision-makers who share a passion for sustainability.


The conference will focus on innovation in the field of life cycle thinking and sustainability as a whole. It intends to combine the latest research with practical solutions, innovative approaches and concrete ways on how to implement sustainability most effectively and efficiently into today’s world. The organizers innovate the conference format by facilitating more interactivity with a mix of workshops, more traditional abstract-based sessions and bar camp-style group discussions.


Eric Mieras, Managing Director of PRé, will contribute to the program by presenting "Scaling up the use of LCA through Technology" on August 30 at 11.30 in the session on "Leveraging Digitalization to Drive Sustainability". In his presentation he will touch upon how to find the right balance between increasing the scale at which LCAs are used and Life Cycle Thinking is implemented and the quality and robustness of the results.


More and more initiatives are taken to make sustainability more fact-based, but if the underlying approach is not transparent and scientifically sound results will lose its credibility and customers their trust. Qualified experts are needed to ensure that. As the application of LCA grows, sufficient expertise might become a point of concern. Therefore, the question becomes: How do we make results available on a larger scale? Is training and educating more people sufficient or is there a more efficient way of scaling up?


Feel free to join the session to reflect upon the answers with us!
