CONFERENCE REPORT

Introduction

The 9th International Conference on EcoBalance (ICEB), organized by the Institute of Life Cycle Assessment, Japan (ILCAJ) and co-organized by the Ecomaterials Forum and Life Cycle Assessment Society of Japan, was held on November 9–12, 2010 in Tokyo, Japan. The main theme of the conference was “Towards & Beyond 2020”, with the aim of discussing problems and solutions in various fields such as energy, resources, food, water, transportation and consumer lifestyle to clarify what needs to be done towards and beyond 2020 to ensure a sustainable future.

The ICEB began in 1994 as a biennial conference to address life cycle assessment (LCA) but has since evolved into a forum to discuss the development and application of methods for steering and measuring sustainability based on life-cycle thinking. To date, the conference has attracted many participants from all over the world working in academia, industry and government.

As in previous years, attendance was high, with as many as...
