WEBINAR 23.11.2022 – ETV as a tool for internalizing the performance of green innovations in the environmental footprint of products and organizations

Conventional technologies may turn out to be ineffective in achieving the ambitious goal of Europe’s climate neutrality by 2050. Also, growing public concern about the natural
environment is rapidly transforming the competitive landscape and forcing companies to adopt green innovation strategies. These strategies involve greening the performance of
products and organizations. Verified technologies can help organizations adapt through objective, third party measurement that declares the environmentally added value as
opposed to competitors on the market.

During the workshop you can find out about how ETV can support the implementation and maintenance of certification in other voluntary environmental schemes like EMAS, EPD and Ecolabel.

Date: 23 November, 14:00 CET time

Venue: On-line

The objectives of the webinar are to:

  • Highlight the links among the different environmental schemes, like ETV, EMAS, EPD and Eco-labelling
  • Provide information on how ETV can contribute to the environmental performance of companies certified in other schemes
  • Improve the recognition and market position of the ETV scheme

Target Audience:

  • Owners of schemes,
  • Testing/certification bodies,
  • Certified organizations (EMAS, ISO 14001) organizations with certified products (EPD, Ecolabels)
  • Organizations planning to get their technologies verified or products certified
  • Providers of innovative green technologies with applications for facilitating environmental performance
  • Technology buyers applying innovative technologies to improve their environmental performance
