生命周期管理相關領域最重要、規模最大的國際盛會——第七屆LCM國際會議將于2015年8月底在法國波爾多舉行。本次會議由CIRAIG，ISM-CyVi ， [avniR]聯合組織，歡迎LCA相關的政策制定與研究人士、研究機構及企業工作者參加。 2015年LCM會議有以下四個議題：
? Policy, regional and data needs for life cycle management (Policy and regions),
? Life cycle management in business practice (LCM in practice),
? Life cycle management in different sectors (LCM by sector),
? Methods for life cycle sustainability assessment and management (Methods for sustainability).
我們將就議題2組織分會場“Managing life cycle information from supply chain for LCM”，歡迎大家關注并參加。
In most of LCA case studies, there are too many data from background databases but too few from supply chain. However, ideal LCAs should collect life cycle data and information from multi-tiers of supply chain as much as possible. It will not only diminish problems about LCA quality, but more importantly engage suppliers in collaborative assessment and improvement, which is the ultimate purpose of LCA and LCM.
This session tries to address the challenges in and explore the solutions for dealing with supply chain, e.g. (but not limited to):
? How to encourage supply chain to provide data and information for LCA?
? How to manage life cycle data from multi-tiers of supply chain in a more practical way?
? How to support collaborative improvement along supply chain?
? How to build a comprehensive green supply chain management system, combining e.g. CSR, REACH?
All presentations with focus on LCA and LCM along supply chain are welcome, e.g. dedicated approaches, tools, policies, practice, etc.
