Benefits of integrating the environment in standards 

The seminar explored the benefits environmental protection aspects integrated in European  standards bring for the environment and economy. It also discussed the  challenges  encountered during the development and use of the standards incorporating environmental  protection provisions and identified necessary future actions.

CEN and CENELEC brought together the policy makers, industry, environmental and  societal stakeholders to discuss how environmental challenges could be transformed into economic opportunities in European standardization.

Participants shared best practices, heard about the challenges encountered in both the  development and use phase of standards containing environmental protection provisions.  They explored the economic & environmental benefits linked to these standards, and identified what would be the next milestone for standardization on the way towards a resource-efficient, green, and competitive low-carbon economy.
