D2.2-Methodology framework document as guidance for accompanying assessment

This report gives a comprehensive overview of commonly used methodologies for a sustainability assessment which were reviewed and evaluated based on certain criteria in order to identify a suitable methodology for the subsequent accompanying sustainability assessments of waste prevention and management activities within the URBANWASTE project. The results of this deliverable will be fed into task 2.3and task 2.4 in order to define which input data will be necessary being collected for the actual sustainability assessment. The main methods identified were the combination of MFA and LCA for the subset environmental assessment, eco-efficiency (EE) under partly consideration of CBA and LCC for economic assessment, and a set of individually developed indicators reflecting social assessment (under consideration of SLCA).
