Neus Escobar contributed to the discussion on “New frontiers in Life Cycle Inventory data: collection and modelling” with the work entitled “Carbon footprint from Brazilian soybeans based on spatially-explicit life cycle inventories, including land use change” at the 28th Annual Meeting of SETAC Europe in Rome (Italy), from May 13th to 17th, 2018.
With this, she presented the TRASE-LCA tool, recently developed together with our colleagues from the Stockholm Environmental Institute (SEI: https://trase.earth) to quantify the carbon footprint of all the supply chains embodied in the whole Brazilian soybean supply for a given year. The carbon footprint module is based on environmental data at the municipality level, together with carbon stock losses due to land conversion into soybean, obtained by remote sensing for the period 2010-2015. It is ultimately intended to inform governance decisions and deforestation and climate mitigation policies, on the one hand; and sustainable production and consumption, on the other.
