We are looking for a highly motivated Programme Manager to join our Climate & Energy team, with a particular focus on the field of Ecodesign and Energy Labelling.
Every year, on 14 October we celebrate World Standards Day. But this time is special: the celebrations centre on how standards can help protect our planet. At ECOS, we believe that standards are essential tools to prevent a climate breakdown, which is why we have been advocating for environmentally ambitious standards for nearly 20 years.
ECOS is looking for experts in the field of Plastics Recycling to represent and defend environmental interests in the development of standards and related policies. Our experts provide us with technical and scientific input and represent ECOS in standardisation processes and multi-stakeholder discussions.

Health and safety of our participants is a priority for us. This is why we decided to move our event online, so that everyone can join from the comfort of their home or office. Would you like to join us on 29 September? Fill in the form below!
European Commission vice president Frans Timmermans and commissioner Kadri Simson today launched the EU’s ‘Renovation Wave’, aimed at doubling the rate of renovation of existing buildings across the continent, with a focus on improving energy performance to reduce associated emissions. 
On 14 October 2020, ECOS joins the celebration of World Standards Day, themed ‘Protecting the planet with standards’. More than ever, we wish to highlight how essential environmentally sound standards are to achieving climate neutrality in the coming years.
Construction provides the roofs over our heads, the roads we drive and cycle on, and tunnels we build to shorten distances. However, the sector has a major environmental impact. If the EU wants to achieve its emission reduction goals, laws will need to make sure the construction sector plays its part, says ECOS, the environmental NGO expert in standardisation.
