Main Topic: Sustainability

Sustainable Economy in a Global Context

In this theme, we will explore the overall trends and expectations to sustainability in Europe, in other regions and in a global context. How does the future sustainable economy look? What are the market trends? What are the policy developments and the policy asks? What are the expectations to industry? What are the major industry initiatives? How will the EU Sustainable Products Initiative set the future EU regulatory requirements? And what are the trends in other regions? Perspectives from policy makers, from NGOs, from industry associations and from sustainability experts.

Circularity and digitalization

In this theme, we will explore how digitalization and circularity goes hand in hand. How can digitalization help provide and share the data needed for a circular approach? What are the idea behind a digital product passport and how can this be achieved in practice? How may sensors contribute to improved sustainability? How can digitalization be used to build new services in support of circularity? What are the opportunities and what are the pitfalls?

Material Efficiency for Circular Economy

In this theme, we will explore the main elements of material efficiency for a circular economy. How are the elements durability, repairability, reusability, ability to remanufacture, upgradeability, recyclability and recycled content defined and how may future requirements look? What is the state of art within the industry? And what are the major industry initiatives?
