The ORIENTING project presented its final results April 18th 2024 during the project Final Conference in Brussels (Belgium), which included also an accelerator session under the World Circular Economy Forum 2024. 120 people attended the event, both in person and online, to get to know all the work done by the project partners and to discuss about the role of Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment methodologies in supporting the policy process.

The main results of the project have been the development of several materials, consisting in methodologies and tools, that aim to help companies, organizations and researchers, among other stakeholders, to implement a Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment (LCSA) for goods, services and processes.

With all these materials, the ORIENTING project wants to boost a sustainable transition in all the companies, including SMEs, and make steps to help accomplish the European Green Deal. ORIENTING has engaged with policy makers about the use of LCSA in the policy process, discussing about and identifying what would be needed for creating a market for sustainable products and activities in the European Union.
