INDUSTRY MEETS ENVIRONMENT IN NEW INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY
A community of researchers, policy makers, industrial strategists,
and environmental advocates announces the launch of the International
Society of Industrial Ecology. The new field of industrial ecology
applies ecological concepts to the organization and operation of industry.
The tools of industrial ecology include eco-design, eco-industrial parks,
material and energy flow studies, life cycle assessment (LCA) and
In continuing support of the field, Yale University's School of Forestry
and Environmental Studies has volunteered to provide the Society with its
preliminary headquarters. An international group of environmental leaders,
one of them being Stefan Bringezu, Wuppertal Institute, will serve as
the steering committee.
Membership applications and information on submitting abstracts
for the November conference can be found on the International Society for
Industrial Ecology website:
