It will reinforce the synergies of practice, international development and up-to-date scientific insights. The conference will closely focus on the potentials and challenges faced by eco-labels in times of globalized markets, ongoing digitalisation and the implementation of the SDGs.

Key experts from the ecolabelling landscape, including policy makers, labelling bodies, representatives from the private and civil sector as well as academia will outline the future of consumer information. Using diverse formats like high level panel discussions, table dialogues and workshops will allow for fruitful discussions, exchange and pave the way for new collaborations.

The conference will be opened on 24 October 2018 with an evening reception to celebrate 40 years of the Blue Angel.

You will receive first-hand information by private sector members, who will share their experience about successfully promoting products with the Blue Angel.
