Innovate and improve the performance of economic sectors by integrating eco-design based on life cycle thinking is the mission of [avniR] platform. A project has been launched in 2011 to implement Life Cycle Thinking into eight different sectors: mechanics, textile, packaging, and aquatic products in the first place and since January 2013: food industry, recycling industry, construction and wood industry.
The project involves four steps:
1) a regulatory surveillance on environmental issues in each sector,
2) an assessment of stakeholders' maturity in the region,
3) an identification of the specific needs,
4) and finally, development of a strategic action plan to integrate Life Cycle Approaches into businesses, education and research organizations.
