White Paper in the context of the research project Biodiversity Valuing & Valuation (BioVal) Phase 1 The white paper “Aquatic Biodiversity Impact Assessment – first ideas” presents initial ideas for assessing the impacts of aquatic biodiversity in the context of life cycle assessment (LCA). These ideas were discussed and developed further with stakeholders in a workshop. In addition, an expert opinion on biodiversity in freshwater ecosystems was included in the white paper. The authors Dr. Ulrike Eberle from the ZNU – Center for Sustainable Leadership at the University of Witten/Herdecke, Prof. Dr. Jan Paul Lindner from the University of Applied Sciences Bochum and Julian Quandt show that it is in principle possible to develop a Life Cycle Impact Assessment (LCIA) method for aquatic biodiversity using the proposed approach. However, there are still some challenges to overcome.
