Consumer safety, climate change, resource and energy efficiency, sustainable chemicals, workers’ protection… Everyday standards impact the quality of people’s lives and their natural environment and it is key to ensure that they are developed keeping the best interest of citizens at heart. The increasing use of standards in national and European legislation and policies in areas of public interest makes the participation of civil society in standardisation more crucial than ever.
Our event will give you insight on how standards are developed and what their impacts are on environmental policies in areas such as ecodesign and circular economy, and explore how civil society can better engage in standardisation at national level.
