We are in the middle of a pandemic crisis, but also in the middle of an environmental crisis. Product brands and manufacturers can make a great difference. The way we produce and use everyday products accounts for almost half of carbon emissions. Companies face external pressures that demand for greater transparency across the supply chain and throughout the product life cycle. For instance, the new EU circular economy action plan is introducing legislative as well as non-legislative measures with focus on the sectors that use most resources and where the potential for circularity is high such as: electronics and ICT; batteries and vehicles; packaging; plastics; textiles; among others.
Now and in the coming years, companies need to evolve and overcome traditional and unsustainable linear economy practices. Consumers and regulations are and will be increasingly demanding proof of the product carbon footprint, materials recycled content, toxic-free materials, recyclability, reparability, durability, just to name a few.
Greenwashing is on the rise with many achievements and sustainability pledges being either not true, not permanent, or double-counted. As a third-party, testing, inspection and certification company, we can help providing elements of trust that are needed in a transition to a circular economy.
