Discussion and recommendations

Charting the vast array of stakeholders, their initiatives and the multitude of tools they have developed is not a trivial task, and a short report cannot capture all details. We should not be surprised about the complexity; at the start of the second chapter, we tried to summarise the fundamental complexity around sustainability information based on LCA, as mentioned in the introduction. When we add a description of stakeholders and actual tools, we add additional complexity, as stakeholders generally have a tendency to work for their own interests and the tools frequently have a deliberate focus and, thus, reduced scope. Very few actors have a complete overview, and creating one is what we tried to do in this report.
