Survey in the PM community on importance of environmental impact indicators

This survey is run within the SUPREME project.

The aim is to assess the awareness of the Powder Metallurgy community about sustainability issues, in particular about the opinions on the importance of the various environmental impact indicators (16 different ones) for the PM industry. As different sectors and activities may have a different view, some of the questions are used to discriminate the origin of the opinions, that will be strictly anonymous.

The key question is the last one, where we ask you to assess the importance of the 16 indicators according to you and your experience and knowledge (not necessarily from a "sustainability expert"!). In order to help you with the definitions of the indicators, we have prepared a "survey guide" where they are described, please check it here in case of need.

For any further explanation, refer to Bruno Vicenzi (bv@epma.com).
