Leonardo Academy invites all interested stakeholders to submit applications to participate on the Standards Committee for BSR/SCS-002-200x, "Type III Life-Cycle Impact Profile Declarations for Products and Services."
As announced in the PINS filing, posted in ANSI Standards Action on November 9, 2007, a Standards Committee will be formed to develop a standard intended to:
"Specif[y] the life-cycle impact assessment (LCIA) methods, scope, metrics and format for declarations. This standard will comply with the requirements of ISO 14044 and ASTM draft standard E06.71.10. This standard is not intended to establish minimum environmental performance requirements or define a preference for one technology relative to another. This standard is intended to develop a uniform and standardized format for properly reporting the environmental life-cycle impacts of any system studied. The standard explicitly excludes weighting factors and interpretation of LCIA results."
The Project Need was described as follows:
"To have verifiable environmental performance data and information in a consistent format, based on a full life-cycle impact assessment."
Industry stakeholders were identified as including: "service industries and their clients, building industry professionals, building owners and operators." Regulators, academicians, environmental representatives, and other interested stakeholders are also invited apply.
