The launch of the advance copy of the report "Supermarket food packaging and its alternatives- Recommendations from Life Cycle Assessments" is being held on 11 October 2022, during the hybrid 13th International Conference on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of Food in Lima, Peru. This UNEP-LCI report is a life cycle assessment meta-analysis that draws recommendations for policymakers and LCA practitioners on the packaging solutions with the least environmental footprint for supermarket food. CCET researcher Dr. Amila Abeynayaka, who works on plastic pollution integration into LCA, contributed to the report as a reviewer.
The final report will be available on the UNEP Repository as well as on the Life Cycle Initiative Website.
