BRUSSELS. – October 8, 2008 - Over 30 companies have now joined the list of speakers for the Sustainable Manufacturing Summit this November 19-21 in Brussels. Senior sustainability experts from Canon, BASF, Unilever, Toyota, Morphy Richards, Coca-Cola, HP, Nokia, Cisco, Hydro, Volvo and more are confirmed to present case studies on their company’s climate reduction strategies at this premier networking event for environmental management, energy management, sustainability and CSR professionals.

The event coincides with the annual EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) awards and a meeting of Europe’s senior sustainability civil servants and provides a number of occasions for sustainability executives to meet with peers, politicians and those charged with delivering the Action Plans for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) and Sustainable Industrial Policy (SIP).

The Commission launched the SIP/SCP Action Plans in July and the Brussels Summit will be attended by many of the leading civil servants charged with delivering SCP/SIP outcomes. The action plans are set to have a dramatic impact on manufacturing across Europe with the announced measures including:

  • A proposal to revise and expand the scope of the EuP Directive to all energy-related products;
  • A widened scope for the use of labels that detail the energy use or impact of products;
  • New public procurement rules to favour the uptake of 'green' products;
  • A revision and expansion of the EU's Ecolabel or flower scheme to include, among others, food and drink products, and;
  • A revision of the voluntary eco-management and audit scheme.
All conference attendees will be invited to a reception with sustainability civil servants and the 2008 EMAS awards.

Recent additions to the Sustainable Manufacturing Summit agenda include Alain Denielle the corporate environmental health and safety group director from STMicroelectronics and Dr Wendy Williams from Eco-label group TCO Development.

The Sustainable Manufacturing Summit is the key industry event for those responsible for developing manufacturing environmental strategies. Through case studies it will provide practical advice on important issues such as: energy efficiency, renewable energy, zero emissions manufacturing, water footprinting, product life cycle analysis, carbon and eco-labelling, eco design, cradle-to-cradle production and industrial symbiosis.
