Description

Biotic Stocks Potential: an improved indicator for Land Use impact assessment? In line with the Performance Economy thinking, a focus shift from managing and measuring environmental flows to stocks is suggested for the case of Biotic Production Potential (BPP) within Land Use Impact assessment in LCA. The difference between BPP and Biotic Stocks Potential is illustrated with a study case, where the bias taken when looking at flows can be seen. The focus of most impact indicators within LCA on environmental flows is put into question here, opening a debate for a possible thinking shift from flows to environmental stocks management.
