Now seven government agencies engaged in the center
A formalized cooperation between government agencies and Swedish Life Cycle Center was set up during 2016, with regular meetings to share experience and build common knowledge. The aim of the group is to increase the collaboration between government agencies regarding the life cycle perspective and with partners in Swedish Life Cycle Center by sharing experiences and knowledge building.
The group has gathered several times for knowledge sharing and discussing a variety of topics, such as: LCA data, Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) and PEF. The group is currently planning the seminar “Sustainable procurement – the role of life cycle perspective”, which will be held in May 2018.
Now, one and a half year after its birth, the group consists of representatives from seven government agencies; National Board of Housing, Building and Planning, Swedish Board of Agriculture, Swedish Consumer Agency, Swedish Energy Agency, Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, Swedish Transport Administration and the National Agency for Public Procurement.
The group is welcomed and invited to participate in activities within the center and the project Swedish platform for the life cycle perspective. The representatives in the group are very pleased with the cooperation so far and the meetings that have been arranged. We are looking forward to continued cooperation!
