Workshop Prompts Member Countries to Reduce GHG / Carbon Emissions from Non-Electrical Products and Construction Works Materials

The Malaysian Economic Planning Unit (EPU) and the Advance SCP Project organised a regional workshop on the methodologies to calculate carbon emissions and to conduct Life Cycle Costing on product groups for construction works from 15 – 17 November 2016.
 
Thirty-five participants from Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand were trained by Oeko-Institut from Germany. The training focused on measuring carbon emissions of non-electrical products for Green Public Procurement and Life Cycle Costing for construction works.
 
As a result of the workshop, some countries have committed to use this tool (Life Cycle Assessment and Life Cycle Costing) for public procurement.
 
Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) patterns establish an essential building block for a low-carbon economy, with access to credible, reliable and ‘user-friendly’ sustainability information as one of the essential conditions for the shift towards SCP.
