We’re delighted to announce the winner of the video contest that EarthShift Global sponsored in conjunction with the CILCA2019 life cycle assessment (LCA) conference held last July in Costa Rica.

A social-media voting process awarded the top prize to “Portal web PeruLCA,” a one-minute informational video about the PeruLCA project website, which serves as the national Life Cycle Inventory database of Peru. All organizations that submitted a video to our contest received a monetary token of appreciation for participating. 

The creators of the winning video are Kurt Ziegler-Rodriguez, Civil Engineer and Researcher, Red Peruana Ciclo de Vida y Ecología Industrial (PELCAN) and Professors Ramzy Kahhat and Ian Vázquez-Rowe, all of the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú (PUCP).  Ian Vasquez Rowe, Kurt Ziegler and Ramzy Kahhat

The project was part of Advance SCP and @PUCP, supervised by the Minister of the Environment of Peru, and financed by @UNEP and the German Federal Ministry of the Environment, the Protection of Nature, and Nuclear Security.

The PeruLCA video can be viewed here  – congratulations, and we wish the PeruLCA team every success in their efforts!
