Summer vacations are approaching, and Swedish Life Cycle Center wishes you all a joyful summer!
It has been an intense semester with a lot of activities and a lot of learnings, networking and new ideas for projects and working groups. The long-awaited working group on biodiversity ran during the semester giving insights regarding ongoing activities on addressing biodiversity pressures from agriculture, forestry, and marine activities. It has also been a forum for initiating new collaborations within the topic. The project Environmental footprint in Swedish Industry – increased understanding and implementation started two case studies and arranged meetings in the Expert group for Environmental footprint. Results from that project will be presented during autumn. The Life Cycle Talks series presented Cecilia Sundberg who gave an excellent talk on why we need a life cycle perspective on negative emissions. If you missed it or other previous talks, they can be found on our YouTube channel.
During the first six months of the year, we have initiated new collaborations with the national authorities Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management, Vinnova and Geological Survey of Sweden and with the SMEs Dalemarken and ZeBeyond. We are looking forward to good collaborations with these organizations moving forward.
Don’t forget that you are welcome to provide us with news and publications for future newsletters! Now we look forward to a few weeks with a different focus, swimming in the sea, walking in the forest or spending time in the shade and reading a book. In any case, we are refueling our batteries and getting ready for the fall semester!
