講演題目:Developing Integrated Assessment Framework and Decision Support Tool for Sustainable Systems and Supply Chains
場所:東京工業大学田町キャンパスCIC 8階 812号室

The need for integrated sustainability assessment has been widely
discussed and is urgent due to increasingly complex environmental
system problems. These problems have impacted ecosystems and human
well-being which represent a threat to economic performance of
countries and industries. A comprehensive systems approach is
essential for effective decision making with regard to global
sustainability, since industrial, social, ecological and technological
systems are closely interlinked. This presentation will present
systems approaches to investigate the impacts on ecological and human
systems of major shifts such as climate change and the associated
industrial policy and technology responses. System simulation models
will be discussed to aid in analysing and gaining insights on how
engineering activities and operations for a supply chain or life cycle
have affected or been affected by the natural ecosystem. Compromise
solutions are needed that satisfy the triple dimensions of
sustainability. Life cycle sustainability assessment (LCSA) requires
that a great deal of quality data and information be secured on
critical indicators and metrics from various stakeholders. The
potential of web-based and Wikipedia technologies to support dynamic
simulation and LCSA of complex systems will be explored. Past and
ongoing projects will be highlighted as well as research plans related
to cleaner production, eco-efficiency, industrial ecology and the
quest for global sustainable development.

Anthony Halog joined the University of Queensland in October 2012
from the University of Maine, USA where he was an Assistant Professor
in Industrial Ecology. Dr Halog has held various positions as Visiting
Faculty Fellow at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory of US
Department of Energy, USA; as an Organization for Economic Cooperation
and Development (OECD) Research Fellow at the Finnish Forest Research
Institute; as Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS)
Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the National Institute of Advanced
Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan; and as an Natural
Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Postdoctoral
Research Fellow at the National Research Council of Canada. He has
been recently selected as a Research Fellow at the Institute for
Advanced Studies on Science, Technology and Society (IAS -STS),
Austria. His qualification in environmental life cycle assessment
(LCA) has been officially certified by the American Centre for Life
Cycle Assessment (ACLCA) since January 2009. Dr. Halog worked before
as Quality Control Engineer/ISO Consultant in food, cement and
consumer industries in the Philippines, plastic moulding industry in
Singapore and toy factory in Thailand.
His research transcends the traditional boundaries of natural
sciences, engineering, and social sciences, . He is currently
developing quantitative and computational models and tools to assess
emerging technologies and industrial ecosystems, which can provide
exciting breakthroughs in research and educational innovation in
sustainability science and engineering. Broadly, his interests are
industrial ecology/eco-efficiency, sustainable consumption and
production, environmental lifecycle assessment (LCA), eco-design,
coupled human and natural systems, industrial sustainability, and
renewable energy production.
