Paper: Social Life-Cycle Assessment and Social Impact Audit Tool

This White Paper introduces a new Social Impact Audit Tool designed to introduce students to the Social Life-Cycle Assessment (S-LCA) of products. It is based on the widely accepted UNEP/SETAC‚ "Guidelines for Social Life Cycle Assessment of Products" (2009), allowing students to explore scenarios that illustrate the S-LCA, its recommended Protocol.

The Tool is implemented in Excel. The motive is educational: to introduce the concept of social life-cycle assessment of products to students of Materials Science, Engineering and Design in a simple way and to provide the tools and data to allow them to apply it.
