Making sustainable products the norm - ECOS online conference
2021 marks our 20th anniversary, celebrate with us!
Our event will be an opportunity to debate the European Commission’s highly anticipated Sustainable Products Initiative. 

The conference will open with a keynote speech by Virginijus Sinkevičius, European Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries.

During the panel, we aim to explore how we can transform the way products are designed, and the key role the EU has to play as a global leader in promoting sustainable production and consumption, a fundamental element in the fight against climate change and in promoting a circular economy.

We will also give an international perspective to the EU’s plans to expand ecodesign to more products, and how this can be a race to the top to make sustainable products the norm globally. The panel will also examine the role standards can play in supporting ambitious policy and legislation in response to global environmental challenges.

Moderated by Katrina Sichel, the discussion will provide first-hand insights from:

Isabelle Durant, Acting Secretary-General, United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD)

Nancy Gillis, Chief Executive Officer, Global Electronics Council

Karin Kreider, Executive Director, ISEAL

Matjaž Malgaj, Head of Unit, DG Environment,
European Commission

Justin Wilkes, Executive Director, ECOS

Jun 17, 2021 02:00 PM in Brussels
