  1. 1. BOMO project as a best practice of C2C V. Castellani , S. Sala, GRISS – Research Unit on Sustainable Development University of Milano Bicocca Department of Environmental Science Department of Environmental Science University of Milano Bicocca
  2. 2. Area of study <ul><li>Mountain Community: Alpi Lepontine </li></ul><ul><li>15 municipalities , 18.469 ha </li></ul><ul><li>6.844 ha of forest </li></ul>
  3. 3. On the desktop of a local policy makers…
  4. 4. Sustainability evaluation of Short supply chains <ul><li>Short supply chains, involving SME’s </li></ul><ul><ul><li>? Reduced impacts (e.g. by transportation) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>? Technical and economic feasibility </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Sustainability evaluation of short supply chains for wood-based products considering: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Availability and accessibility of forest biomass (GIS-based evaluation of carrying capacity of forest ecosystems) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Environmental impacts and efficiency of materials and energy flows (LCA, C-Lean) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Management of economic and operational aspects of the supply chain (Lean Thinking and C-Lean) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Socio-economic aspects related to local development (Sustainability indicators, extended LCA) </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Make it happen .....
  6. 6. BOMO project <ul><li>two researching groups ( forest sector and sustainability) </li></ul><ul><li>two consortia of SME’s (more then 250 SME’s) </li></ul><ul><li>1 province and several local authorities </li></ul><ul><li>two partners devoted to communication </li></ul><ul><li>a multidisciplinary multistakeholder project </li></ul>
  7. 7. Supply chain Forest Actors Tools Communication I ndirect effects Carrying capacity Sustainable forest management Environmental protection against hydro geological problems Wood Energy Furniture Retailers Lean thinking Ecodesign ISO 14001 ERA for Chemical Assessment More then 250 SME’s informed about ECODESIGN, LCT, ECOLABELS Green Public Procurement Job opportunity in underdeveloped areas Increase of awareness in Consumers, both public and private, Green Procurement Reduction of marginal cost, following the concept of “value” Green marketing
  8. 8. <ul><li>Quantitative Carrying Capacity </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How much </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Qualitative Carrying Capacity </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How and where and when </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Operational Carrying Capacity </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Who and to what extent </li></ul></ul>Carrying capacity
  9. 9. Chemicals along the supply chain Barmaz S., Sala S. Environmental risk assessment of chemicals in forest-wood supply chain Poster presented at SETAC Europe 2010 Seville
  10. 10. Lean Thinking <ul><li>To make a local system competitive, it is necessary to reframe the entire production process, promoting efficiency and reducing wastes. </li></ul><ul><li>Lean Thinking is a management model developed in the context of methods for quality improvement and processes engineering; it is aimed to promote efficiency and reduce wastes </li></ul><ul><li>It identifies 5 principles which should lead any reengineering and reorganization process effort ( Value mapping, Value stream, Flow, Pull, Perfection ) </li></ul><ul><li>“ C-Lean” enlarges the principles perspective to include environmental waste in the evaluation </li></ul>Logistic optimisation Sala S, Castellani V. (2009). Integration of LCA and C-Lean for sustainability assessment of short supply chain related to forest products. Proceedings of 16 th SETAC LCA Case Study Symposium, Poznan. Tim P. Mitchell, ( 2004). Principles of Lean Thinking. National Resource Council Canada,

Solid wood cut Furniture design Furniture assembling Marketing End of life Combustion Residues Wood chipping Buying/use Plywood cut Layers gluing Pressing Finishing Finishing Chipboard from residues Soundproof layers Forest management Felling Cut-to-length Cable logging Branches cut Harvesting Sawmilling Drying Retailing Issues to be considered: Transportation Use of hazardous substances Residues that can be recycled Possibility of certification Energy consumption Energy production
  14. 14. Retailers involvement <ul><li>The beginners … </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Training course for 40 retailers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>10 retailers for a pilot application </li></ul></ul>Reasons to become a “green shop”…..
  15. 15. From design to prototypes International Design Furniture Fair Milano, Italy, April 2010
  16. 16. Some conclusion… to make sustainability operational <ul><li>Limits and rate of consumption have to be integrated in scenario development </li></ul><ul><li>Importance of a widen involvement of whole supply chain and stakeholders </li></ul><ul><li>Need for a strategy to simplify access to existing methodologies and tools </li></ul><ul><li>Strenghten relationship with Public Authorities (local planning, strategic projects etc) </li></ul><ul><li>Need of translation of the results of research into a usable format for the users, both policy maker. Local stakeholders </li></ul><ul><li>Indirect effect and indirect indicators have to be taken into account </li></ul><ul><li>Improvement of knowledge management to capitalize the existing knowledge as a key factor for improving capacity building of Local Communities. </li></ul>
