Event description

Description

There are many fora for discussions about circular economy and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and there are lots of new exciting ideas in these areas. This conference is about going from theory to practice, and how independent ecolabels are a good tool for this. Let´s walk the talk !

During the day we will have presentations of how the greening of the economy globally, in Europe and specifically in the Nordic countries is stimulated by creating a pull in the market among both consumers and professional purchasers. In that pull for green solutions independent ecolabelling offers strong assistance by very differentiated measures.


Streaming: for those who can not join us in Stockholm, the event will be streamed. You will also be able to watch it afterwards.
