Betriber & Emwelt Conference : EMAS and EU ecolabel – part 1

Innovative tools and instruments for environmental management and product design & evaluation

Environmental management, product design and evaluation tools offer possibilities to companies and organisation to valorise their efforts to effectively manage environmental impacts of their activities. Clearly, they propose the advantage of independent certification and transparent communication on environmental impacts and benefits to the general public and customers.
Two schemes of the European Union – the Environmental Management System for organisations (EMAS) and the EU Ecolabel for product design and evaluation – are at the heart of this half-day Betriber&Emwelt conference. Representatives from the European Commission will share insights into both schemes and, most importantly, clarify differences between EMAS and other existing schemes such as the ISO 14001 standard.
Invited speakers from EMAS-certified companies will share experience of the transition towards EMAS, why EMAS certification was important for their business and which benefits it provides. The Luxembourgish Government is financially supporting companies to adopt environmental certification and Luxinnovation will give an overview on existing funding possibilities. The event will offer ample time to exchange and discuss with speakers and other participants.
