The 1st PEF World Summit is over now and it has been a great success. More than 140 international experts from a broad range of sectors shared their perspectives on ways to scale-up sustainable consumption and production. In numerous presentations, working groups and informal meetings we exchanged opinions, experience and developed possible solutions to tackle hurdles of implemention. Furthermore networks were extended to collaborate in the EU Environmental Footprint pilot phase, in carbon footprinting, in hot-spot-analysis development or for a better application of measures for the reduction of the environmental impacts of products and organisations.
A main focus of the conference was set on the EU Environmental Footprint initiative. To provide you a better understanding of this important initiative we invite you to watch the presentation by Michele Galatola (European Commission/DG Environment) recorded at the 1st PEF World Summit. At the conference Michele presented the selection of the Environmental Footprint Pilot Projects (PEF/OEF), gave an outlook on the upcoming three years of the pilot phase and described the possibilities of how to join the process.
