Webinar: Energy efficiency along the value chain

Date:Tuesday, 23 February, 2016 Time:14:00 - 15:00


During this webinar Emma Rex will present the main findings from the research project “Energy efficiency along the value chain” which was running during 2015 and coordinated within Swedish Life Cycle Center. The aim of the project was to develop methods for large companies on how to work with energy efficiency that stretches along the value chain. Organizational conditions and physical effects on energy and climate were studied in six cases in three companies. Emma will present the main organizational challenges identified in the study, and present four strategies for progress. She will also present a power point presentation that is available for all partners in Swedish Life Cycle Center, designed to be used as a base for discussions for those who would like to initiate a discussion internally about how to work with life cycle issues.

There will be time for questions and discussion.
