INVITATION TO TAKE PART IN THE DEVELOPMENT OR REVISION OF THE EU ECOLABEL CRITERIA FOR WOODEN FLOOR COVERINGS
A study to inform the development and the revision process for wooden floor coverings will be carried out by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre's Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (JRC-IPTS), with support from the company LC Engineering. This process is being carried out for the Directorate General for the Environment. In order to ensure a comprehensive review is undertaken, wide stakeholder consultation is foreseen with all concerned parties, such as manufacturers, trade bodies, the supply chain industry, consumer organisations and NGOs.
The EU Ecolabel criteria will be based on the requirements described in the EU Ecolabel Regulation 66/2010. The criteria will be defined on the basis of the environmental information derived from Life Cycle Assessment and product oriented environmental performance assessment studies. Several environmental, safety, technical and functional aspects will also be considered. Moreover, during the criteria development/revision process continuous wide stakeholder consultation is foreseen with manufacturers, supply chain industry, consumer organisations and NGOs.
We are therefore looking to encourage active participation from stakeholders. You have been identified as a potential stakeholder and we are contacting you to ask whether you would like your organisation to be registered to take part in this process. This may be also done by responding to the questionnaires which will be sent following this invitation in a separate message.
Registered stakeholders will be regularly informed about the progress of the study, will have access to preliminary results and draft documents and will be invited to respond to questionnaires and/or participate at stakeholder meetings. Information will be disseminated through the dedicated website: http://susproc.jrc.ec.europa.eu/wooden_floor_coverings/index.html. One of the main forums will be the ad-hoc working group meetings, of which there will be two during the process. All background information, as well as announcements of ad-hoc working group meetings will be available soon at the official project's websites, which will be communicated soon to registered parties.
Should you wish to register and be informed about the progress, please send us a brief response to the following address: JRC-IPTS-FLOOR-COVERING@ec.europa.eu
Thank you in advance for your response.
FA01 Life Cycle thinking and Carbon Footprinting
2014 EDITION - The FA01 course aims at providing an advanced knowledge of the Life Cycle Thinking approach by means of the Life Cycle Assessment methodology, the primary tool for the assessment of environmental impacts.
Particular care will be devoted to the indicator of environmental performance Carbon Footprint, the method of accounting for both organizations and products, aspects of communication in line with the latest standards and protocols (ISO 14064, ISO 14067, GHG Protocol, PAS 2050, etc.).
