Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The contribution of environmental economics to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) is at the foundation of contemporary economic research. Environmental economics deals with the most pressing issues of today, e.g., climate change, biodiversity protection, green economy, bioeconomy, and circular economy.

It focuses on successfully applying economic analytical methods to the environment and sustainable development (SD). Economists investigate many issues related to the lack of qualitative and quantitative data and common indicators, insufficiently developed analytical frameworks for the holistic assessment of environmental changes, the insufficient spread of knowledge, and good-practice examples of using environmental economics methods for achieving breakthroughs in sustainable development. The Special Issue Advances in Environmental Economics and Sustainable Development provides the state of the art and the major achievements in environmental economics in the analysis, prediction, and best-practice case studies to achieve the SDGs. It aims to collect scientific and expert papers, providing in-depth analysis of policy frameworks and future projections, possibilities for and applications of economic analytical methods, and numerous examples of good practices of environmental economics methods used for SD evaluation to encourage policymakers and the wider interested public to more intensively use them in various fields of life and in work in different sectors. This will all achieve the primary purpose of ensuring the well-being of society as a whole.

The application of blockchain technology in the field of environmental economics is still in its inception so it is not sufficiently used in a holistic and integrated life cycle sustainability assessment (HILCSA). The capability of the blockchain to provide a verifiable and transparent record can make it a good tool in environmental economics for an agile reflection in doing business and production. The research is focused on the advantages and challenges in the inclusion of blockchain technology into a holistic life cycle assessment. Based on the existing possibilities of using blockchain technology in environmental economics and life cycle assessments (LCAs), a framework and a model for applying the blockchain in the holistic life cycle sustainability assessment are proposed. A Design Science methodology was used as a research strategy. Particular emphasis in this paper is put on risk management when integrating blockchain methodologies through environmental economics into the life cycle sustainability assessment (LCSA) in order to use all the advantages of the blockchain technology optimally.
