  1. The Socio-Eco-Efficiency Analysis: SEEbalance® SEEbalance® high socio -eco-efficiency Reduction of raw material and energy consumption Environmental impact Social impact low number of working accidents Costs

  3. The Three Pillars of Sustainable Development Sustainable Development ecology society economy SEEbalance®-Analysis Eco-EfficiencyAnalysis

  4. Universität Karlsruhe (TH) Institut für Geographie und Geoökologie Development of SEEbalance® From the Eco-Efficiency Analysis to the SEEbalance® • aim: Integration of quantifiable social indicators in the BASF eco-efficiency analysis • schedule: starting point 2001 end point March 2005 • this subproject was a part of the BMBF project „Sustainable Chemistry of Aromatics“ co-operation partners for the development of the SEEbalance® were:

  5. What is an Socio-Eco-Efficiency Analysis (SEEbalance)? • Method for the comprehensive assessmentof products and processes. • Ecological and economic and social aspects are given equal weight in assessments. • The products are analyzed from the angle of the end customer. • (Future) scenariosand effects of various action options are presented. • Eco-efficiency analysis is a standard tool in the BASF Group; more than 240 analyses have been carried out (about 15 SEEbalance).

  6. SEEbalance® Results: Men‘s Shirts • This analysis includes in the social assessment the stakeholder employees, consumers, national community and future generations. • The 100% polyester shirt is a hypothetical shirt considered only for comparison and is not frequently encountered in the market. User benefit alternative Comparable alternatives Wearing a blue men‘s shirt (40 times) 100 % cotton shirt 100% polyester shirt (PET) blended fabric shirt (65% cotton, 35% PET)

  9. 1,0 0,5 0,0 Analogies between Ecological and Social LCA Ecological LCA Social LCA Potential impact of product or processes on natural capitale. g. - energy consumption - global warming potential (GWP) What is to be assessed? Potential impact of product or processes on human/social capital e. g. - consumer - future generation 1st : Inventory analysis (inputs/ outputs) 2nd: Impact assessment for defined indicators e. g. GWP: 11 CO2-equivalent per UB 1st : Inventory analysis (inputs/ outputs) 2nd: Impact assessment for defined indicatorse. g. employees: 3 working accidents per UB Ökologischer Fingerprint • Social Fingerprint Aggregation and presentation of results Ecological Fingerprint Employees Energy consumption 1,0 Internationalecommunity 0,5 Consumer alternative 1 UB = user benefit Area use Emissions 0,0 alternative 2 Local & national community Future generation Raw material consumption Eco-toxicity potential

  10. employees 1,00 0,50 future generation consumer 0,00 national community cotton polyester blended febric Results:Social Fingerprint • The social fingerprint shows the social influence of a product or process according to the weighting factors

  12. Normalization factor • Question: To which extent does the product contribute to the socialproblem on a national level? • Character: objective • Source: • To be calculated fromnational statistics • Weighting factor • Question: • How serious is the social problemcompared to the others?(probability, extent and duration ofconsequences) • Character: normative, subjective • Source: • polls (among experts or stakeholders) X = total assessment factor Assessment Scheme for Social Criteria Source: Schmidt

  13. Course of Action • The SEEbalance® will be used as an official tool for life cycle assessment in the eco-efficiency group • Boosted external communication and public relations • In the future 10 – 20 % of all studies will be SEEbalances®

  14. „Social profile“ of 1000 t of polyester (analogous to eco-profile) How Does SEEbalance ® Work? • 1st step: Search for the economic sector of the product e.g. polyester: sector “production of polymers” (NACE 24.16) • 2nd step: Search for the entries in the social LCA database • e.g. Production of polymers (NACE 24.16): • Working accidents: 0.058 accidents / 1000 t • Number of employees: 9,9 employees / 1000 t • ... (all other indicators) • 3rd step: Multiply specific social profile with the product quantities

Industries Goods CPC ISIC Worldwide (UN) CPA NACE EU-Level national version NACE(e.g. WZ) national version CPA (e.g. GP) National Level NACE - International Compatibility • Related classifications in more than 140 countries • Limited compatibility with NAICS (Canada, USA, Mexico) Source: Eurostat 2003

  20. Placement of the SEEbalance® „cradle-to-gate“ ...from raw material to factory gate „cradle-to-grave“ ... including use and recycling eco-profile „cradle-to-grave and costs“ ... including all life cycle costs LCA „cradle-to-grave, costs and social aspects“ ... including social aspects eco-efficiency SEEbalance®

  21. Aims of the SEEbalance® 1. „Quality-of-life“: Improvement of objective living conditions Improvement of subjective well-being 2. „Social Cohesion“: Reduction of disparity and social exclusion Fortification of social bonds and coherence 3. „Sustainability“: Intergenerational fairness International responsibility (intergenerational fairness) According to the system of GESIS/ ZUMA 2001

  22. Due to the child labour in NIKE sneaker production, a compaign which proclaimed an Anti – Nike day was started (May 2001). Reasons for the development of the SEEbalance® Kölsch: Darf man das LOGO von Nike verwenden? Negativ Werbung!!! Integration of the third pillar of sustainability Increasing pressure on part of society Supposed hormonal effects of phthalates (plasticizer) in children’s toys resulted in disappearance from the market even though no scientitic proof existed Acceptance by the customer is imperative for the purchase of a product Taste of packaged food, e.g. sausages TV – enclosure with flame retardant

  23. Internal • Strategy • Comparison of production sites • Comparison of markets • Marketing • (social) acceptance of the product (projects: sausage -study, redevelopment of residential area) External Application of the SEEbalance® • Profit: • secure decisions about products • and markets • communication • on coperate level • on product level • has an established and quantifiable • basis • (e.g. for coperate reports)
