To what extend lifetime extension influences sustainability?




Thursday 9th November 2017 from 2pm to 3.30pm - Amphi A


Sustainability of products is a key issue for the implementation of the circular economy. However, the link between extending the life of a product and its environmental impacts is difficult to quantify. This depends on the quality of the product, the behavior of the consumer and environmental factors such as weather, temperature, climatic conditions, etc. The planned obsolescence of goods is associated with the linear economy. The extended life of the products will result in a different economic model. The LCA must take this into account.

Isabelle Robert, Searcher lecturer in science of management at the University Lille 2, doctor in economic science is member of the LSMRC/MERCUR research laboratory since 2008. After having structured her research activities on two axles: the responsible consumption and the social responsibility of organizations, her works are now focused on the sustainable business models. She explores the notion of territorial value of their new sustainable business models and the links between externality, creation of territorial value, plays of actors and life cycle assessment.
