Abstract

The Government of Minas Gerais, in its strategic plan 2011-2014 established the sustainable economic development as one of its strategies and in this context born the Pole of Excellence in Environmental Innovation (PEEI). A major challenge in the environmental projects development field is integration and achieving multi-stakeholder consensus for collaborative joint projects to decision making. A critical aspect in the decision making process is to enable stakeholders to not only interpret and make decisions based on politicians judgments, but also to appropriately involve many sector to decision making process. Therefore, scientific analyses in multi-stakeholder contexts can assist responsible decision making in environmental and innovations public projects. As the main goal of this paper is presents an outline of a Life Cycle Thinking to support sustainable decision making in multi-stakeholder contexts to innovation and environmental public projects. The framework is discussed and compared to other common methods used to support environmental decision making in development projects. We argue that the fundamental concept of life cycle thinking can be effectively used to incorporate stakeholders in the research and decision making process, which can lead to more comprehensive, yet achievable assessments in collaboration with stakeholders.
