Environmental footprint: What’s in it for me?

Warsaw, 4 September 2019 r., at 9:30 a.m.

On behalf of the European Commission and the Mineral and Energy Economy Research Institute we invite you to take part in the training that will explain the meaning of the Environmental Footprint, clarify what it means for companies and how results can support decision-making.

The event is organized with:


Designing better products, greening supply chains and providing credible information to stakeholders are important elements in the circular economy toolbox. The Environmental Footprint methods are an answer to these needs. The European Commission developed the Product and Organisation Environmental Footprint methods (PEF and OEF, respectively) in close collaboration with industries, member states and NGOs. They calculate a range of environmental impacts, taking into consideration the entire life cycle, from the extraction of raw materials to the end of life of the product.

This training, with special participation of An De Schryver, Policy Officer at the European Commission, will explain the meaning of the Environmental Footprint, its history and potential future policy implications. It will clarify what it can bring for companies, how results can support decision-making and how companies can be engaged.

Deloitte experts will discuss how climate change is currently much more than just an environmental issue and that it has become a business factor as well. They will review latest regulations and actions to be taken by companies that want to succeed in the future.

Note: This is an invitation-only event. Participation in the event is free after prior registration. We reserve the right to verify applications due to the limited number of places.
