Consumer Information Programme for Sustainable Consumption and Production

The Consumer Information Programme for Sustainable Consumption and Production (CI-sCP) serves as a global platform to engage consumers in sustainable consumption through the provision of quality information. The CI-SCP programme is working on a project with the National Cleaner Production Centre (NCPC SL) Sri Lanka  to increase accessibility to sustainability information.

The objective of the project is to establish a green product certification scheme for selected products through developing a Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) Database. The overall goal is to support economic and sustainable development in the agri food sector businesses in the country. Accordingly, NCPCSL has started the national scale survey on LCI data collection to develop the databases for tea, rice and dairy industries in Sri Lanka.

Attached below are three questionnaires/data collection sheets (tea, dairy, rice) for the survey on LCI database development. We would like to receive the following feedback on these questionnaires:

1. Are the questionnaires generally suitable for the stated purposes?

2. What are the specific questions and data needs for LCI data base development?

3. What are areas that we can be omitted from the questionnaires (if not necessary for LCI database)?
