In December of 2011, Fundación Chile invited a Working Group of key stakeholders in the development of Chilean Agriculture and Food Life Cycle Inventory (LCI). The workshop was supported by Edge Environment and Dr Sangwon Suh.
This initiative has strong links with the development of the Chilean hub of the international Sustainability Consortium (sustainabilityconsortium.org), an organization founded by Wal-Mart. The Sustainability Consortium’s main objective the creation of an inventory of global life cycle to develop a sustainability index that can be applied to all products from stores worldwide. As an active member in the Sustainability Consortium, Fundación Chile and Edge Environment are adapting the sustainability index creation and development of life cycle inventory for the agricultural sector and food in a national context for Walmart Chile.
