Whales, waste and sea walnuts: incorporating human impacts on the marine ecosystem within life cycle impact assessment
Ecological Indicators, Volume 135, February 2022

Marine animals have been known to interact with and become entangled in plastic debris for decades. Despite increasing annual input volumes of plastic waste to
the natural environment and the threat this constitutes to marine biodiversity, impacts of mismanaged plastic waste generally remain unquantified in environmental impact assessments.

Plastic waste from anthropogenic activities is accumulating in the marine environment and poses a threat to marine biodiversity. Nevertheless, tools to assess the potential ecosystem damage from plastic waste are currently lacking from sustainability assessment approaches, such as life cycle assessment (LCA) methodologies.

Marine litter, mostly plastics, is a growing environmental problem. Environmental decision makers are beginning to take actions
and implement regulations that aim to reduce plastic use and waste mismanagement. Nevertheless, life cycle assessment (LCA), a tool commonly used to assist
environmental decision making, does not yet allow for considering the consequences of plastic waste leaked into the environment.
