Take a look at the summary of discussions – ECOS Conference follow-up

Our annual conference, held online on 29 September 2020, gathered over 140 participants and a wide range of stakeholders. Whether you missed it or would like to dip back into the topic - our conference summary is ready for you to be explored!

Civil society and industry representatives, as well as policy makers and national authorities, gathered to discuss how policies, laws and standards can transform the construction sector from an environmental problem to part of the solution.

What was discussed?

  • Current strategic commitments for a sustainable built environment
  • Future policy framework for a sustainable built environment and key sectoral changes needed to meet EU and global climate commitments
  • The Construction Products Regulation review process and how it can foster greater circularity
  • Regulatory requirements and standardisation needs crucial in the context of the EU sustainable product policy framework

Take a look at our summary and get the gist of the discussions ranging from the keynote speech by Marius Vaščega, Head of Cabinet of the European Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries to our two panels dedicated to the “Sustainable Built Environment” and the Construction Products Regulation review.

ECOS is co-funded by the European Commission and EFTA
