Welcome to Life Cycle Talks! A series of talks presenting the research front to keep you up to date with the science and application of the life cycle perspective. Our upcoming guest, Bengt Steen, Professor emeritus at Chalmers University of Technology, will discuss the monetary valuation of environmental impacts, providing insights into both its present status and future prospects.

“Monetary values of environmental impacts have for long been regarded as valuable to support decision-making. The last years several international initiatives have been taken to increase accessibility of data.” Says Bengt Steen


Bengt Steen is Professor emeritus at Chalmers University of Technology. His research focuses on product development, and guiding choices between alternatives. This has been made through monetary valuation of added values of environmental impacts of the alternatives. He is active in ISO’s work on standardization of LCA and monetary valuation, UNEP’s Life Cycle Initiative, and Impact Valuation Sprint led by Value Balancing Alliance.
