Editor's Notes

  • Here a couple of example that we are looking into in on-going criteria development processes
    In some MS, especially the NL, we can see very ambitious approaches in PP on how to move to a whole circular eco-design of products – which we are following with great interest – but this will surely be presented by our hosts

  • Details still to be decided on training
    Hold up Buying Green if possible
    PA can use TA and peer-to-peer learning in all kind of things to implement their policies – this could also be done for GPP. These programs are very much demand-driven: the MS need to ask for it, we cannot impose this
    We are also here to learn and take inspiration back home from this conference on how to increase the uptake of GPP. If you have more ideas, do not hesitate to contact us.
