Rolf Frischknecht bags 2020 Edana LCA award

May '20
Rolf Frischknecht has bagged the 2020 Edana LCA Lifetime Achievement Award. The award, which recognises the outstanding contributions in promoting life cycle thinking and improving LCA approaches, was presented at the 30th annual conference of SETAC, the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, which was held online from May 3-7, 2020.

The award was granted in recognition of Frischknecht’s outstanding contributions to life cycle inventory databases and methodology. He is especially known for his leading role from 1998 to 2008 in the design, development, implementation and operation of the life cycle inventory database eco-invent, laying a solid ground for its sustainable recognition and worldwide success, according to a press release by Edana.

Throughout his professional career, Frischknecht dedicated his efforts to promote life cycle thinking and raise the awareness of environmental impacts hidden in the supply chains of products and services, and to lower the efforts in performing environmental life cycle assessment in environmentally crucial areas such as dwelling, mobility, and food.

“SETAC’s work to advance the science, practice, and application of LCAs has been invaluable in achieving consensus on techniques and methodology, greatly contributing to the successful assessing and addressing of environmental challenges. Edana is greatly honoured to recognise such professional commitment to research and development in this field,” Gil Stevens, Edana’s external relations and sustainability director said.
