Net Positive Social Impact - NP Considerations Unique to Health

Traditional (Environmental) LCA addresses Environmental pathways to (Population) Health

  • Pollution released to environment across life cycle→Exposures and health effects

  • The context can determine the expected severity of the impact. For example, the expected human health consequences of an air pollution release depend in part on the population density downwind of the release.

  • Impacts may affect different populations, raising distributional/ethical/justice issues.
