New research project on politicization of sustainability indicators approved


The research project “Faster, easier, better? Life Cycle Modeling in the Information Age” is funded by the Sustainability Hub of Merck and TU Darmstadt.

The project uses Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) as a scientific method to balance environmental impacts of products, services or technologies “from cradle to grave”. Together with the departments of Material Flow Management and Resource Economics (Prof. Liselotte Schebek), and Data Management (Prof. Carsten Binnig), we will work on a roadmap for Life Cycle Assessment in the Information Age, which will show companies new ways of using data processing for improved sustainability management and thus enable more efficient and targeted management within the company towards improved resource efficiency and climate protection.
