Description: 

Up to 80% of the environmental impacts are determined during the product design stage. Additionally, raw materials, most of which are imported and subject to important price and supply fluctuations, account for more than 50% of product manufacturing costs. The European Commission has developed market, knowledge and legislative instruments to be deployed EU wide, nationally and locally to address this risks and challenges.

This event, co-organised by the European Resource Efficiency Knowledge Centre – EREK, seeks to answer questions such as: Are you aware of the current market and policy trends on circular economy, resource efficiency and product policy? Do you know what your competitors are doing? Do you know the implications of these challenges and risks for your company?

The objectives of the event are to:

  • Share the instruments of the European Commission and the driving forces that lead to higher resource efficiency and circular economy in products
  • Detect opportunities based on results, barriers and the recommendations of business cases
  • Discover the circular economy and resource efficiency challenges that will fit to compete products and services of European business
