Environmental improvement actions by retailers
Paper i proceeding, 2013
As retailers´ decisions give environmental consequences both upstream and downstream the value chain, there is need of a tool for valuation of decisions and actions. This project has further developed and tested an actor based LCA methodology for retailers in case studies of egg and pork. Retailers improvement actions has been change in storage practice as well as transport practise e.g. home delivery. The result showed no environmental difference in longer storage, while there is a high environmental potential in offering home delivery. The actor based LCA methodology gives retailers better knowledge of their own environmental actions in the life cycle, as well as gives ideas for collaboration along the chain.
