The objective of this study is to identify social implications of Silangit Airport of Lake Toba Area using Social Life Cycle Assessment methodological framework. The assessment involves relevant stakeholders, such as employees, local community members, government, and consumers. The assessment criteria are adopted from Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry/ United Society of Environmental Programme Code of Practice. Each criterion was weighted by employing an expert survey. Stakeholders’ perspectives were gauged by measuring gaps between expectation and perception, which are gauged using seven-point Likert Scale.
