Webinar: Monetary valuation of environmental impacts – models and data

Date:Thursday, 16 April, 2020 Time:10:00 - 11:00

Welcome to this webinar by Bengt Steen, professor emeritus at Chalmers University of Technology about his recently launched book  Monetary valuation of environmental impacts: Models and Data. The book is based on the EPS system, which is adapted to the new ISO standard 14008 on monetary valuation of environmental impacts and related aspects. The most significant differences compared to the 2015 version of the EPS impact values are the valuation of impacts on environmental goods. For example, the value of 1 kg of crop is based on detailed data from FAO. The impact factors, i.e. relating emissions to impacts on environmental goods are briefly described. The webinar is intended to be of value for LCA and CBA practitioners and for developers of circular economy.

Why did you write this book?

– “The new ISO 14008 standard on monetary valuation of environmental impacts and related aspects, published in March this year, offers a harmonized structure to communicate monetary values of environmental impacts. My research on the issue has been difficult to communicate and now there was an opportunity to reach a large audience in a credible way. The dissemination of the standard would also benefit from a concrete example.”
