    New developments within the team: a PEP Auditor for EEE environmental product declarations and an accredited BBCA and Energie Carbone consultant for building life cycle analysis. For several years EVEA has also had two FDES auditors (environmental-health declarations for building materials). Our other sectoral recognitions include: Plant chemistry (ACDV guide), Food industry (ADEME study), Energy and territories (Venteea project).

  •  

    10 years of EVEA! - 2015

From April 24-26 in Paris, a group of LCA specialists currently participating in the UNEP’s Life Cycle Initiative met with a number of academics and LCA consultants who pioneered the development of social LCA. Marie Vuaillat, EVEA’s Mission Director and primary Social LCA expert, participated.

The goal of this workshop was to update the international guidelines for the use of social LCA and to develop a new version of the guide that covers them. 10 years after the publication of the first UNEP/SETAC guide on social LCA, interest in the subject has increased considerably; several new methods, data, and case studies have since been published that subsequently contributed to its evolution; updating the guidelines became a necessary next step.

Topics of discussion at the workshop included typologies of social LCA, current social LCA guidelines and how they should be presented in the new guide, and how to communicate on and critically review social projects.

This was an opportunity for EVEA to contribute our expertise in social LCA, and to continue to strengthen it. On a larger scale it helped us continue working towards our overall mission: to always practice the best LCA methods and to share our expertise with others.

The next step for the development of the guide is a pilot phase, where use of the guide will be tested by businesses before its publication in April 2020.

If participation in the pilot phase interests you, or if you want to know more about EVEA’s role in this project, contact us!
To know more about the revision of the social LCA guidelines, please visit the Social LC Alliance’s website.

Participants in the workshop included social LCA specialists from PRé Consultants, LCA 2.0, CIRAIG, University of Ghent, University of Aachen, and others.

EVEA’s Director of Agro-Resources and Green Chemistry, Samuel Causse, participated in a round table discussion at a seminar organized by France’s environmental agency, ADEME, on January 11th. The seminar, called « Agribalyse », focused on a program bearing the same name developed by ADEME for environmental evaluation of agricultural products in France. ADEME developed Agribalyse 10 years ago and the goal of this seminar was to evaluate the program on a global level since its creation as well as to improve the program for future use.

The seminar served in part as a platform for environmental professionals to discuss data development processes, methodologies to calculate environmental impact, and current use of Agribalyse by businesses. The seminar concluded by a conversation on future development of the program to best address the varying needs of both the private and public sectors.

During the round table discussion, Samuel had the chance to present some of EVEA’s work in eco-design and responsible communication in the agricultural and agro-food sectors.

The round table was organized by ADEME’s Jérôme Mousset and Vincent Colomb. Full list of round table participants: An De Schryver, Sandrine Espagnol, Chantal Gascuel, Samuel Causse.

On January 15, EVEA project manager Sophie Laroche presented a new method of flow analysis for secondary materials (MFA) in the building sector at the Alliance HQE-GBC’s Circular Economy Conference. The conference took place in Paris’s 16th arrondissement.

EVEA’s building department in Nantes collaborated on the project with Cerqual, the certification branch of the French nonprofit organization in charge of housing quality.

The MFA method, which was designed to support the increased application of a circular economy in the building sector, uses FDES and PEP data from INIES (France’s national database containing information on environmental and sanitary declarations for a range of products in the building sector) and data from various building LCAs. This is the first MFA method in the sector that makes significant use of these data sources.

The Alliance HQE-GBC has since started accepting entries for the first applied use of this MFA method: a series of tests evaluating the environmental impact of various kinds of buildings. Sign your building up before March 01: HQE Circular Economy Performance.

Conference organizers included the Minister of Ecological and Inclusive Transition, the Minister of Territorial Cohesion and Relations with Local Authorities, OREE, Certivéa, Cycle Up, and Institut National de l'Économie Circulaire (INEC).

Serge Ferrari, a world leader in flexible composite materials has just published their first Norwegian EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) for the product Flexlight Perform 832 for "tunnel" application. EVEA provided environmental analysis software and consultation services during the process.

Flexlight Perform 832 is a type II composite membrane that offers excellent strength. Its resistance to abrasion and UV ensures a long lifespan for metallo-textile structures.

This is the first EPD adhering to the EN 15804 standard that has been produced by EVEA for the Norwegian program EPD-NORGE and was carried out using SimaPro software and the Ev-DEC tool designed by EVEA.
