  2. 2. Who is saying what? – Speakers and programme February 27th 08:00 Registration9:00 – 10:30 Product and Organisation Environmental Footprint – Methodological issues and policy outlookSetting the scene Michele Galatola EU Commission DG Environment, Policy Officer The Commission has been actively working in the last two years on the development of a harmonised methodology for the calculation of the Environmental Footprint of Products (PEF) and Organisations (OEF). PEF and OEF are multi-criteria measures of the environmental performance of products or organisations from a life cycle perspective. Michele will explain why the Commission started to work on this issue, how the work has been carried out, the main elements that will be part of the two methodologies, and the next steps, both in terms of further methodological developments and also policy implementation. The Italian national programme for the Environmental Footprint Martina Hauser Ministry for the Environment Land and Sea of the Republic of Italy, Coordinator of the Task Force for the assessment of the environmental footprint of systems and patterns of production and consumption The presentation from Martina Hauser will explain the initiatives of the Italian Ministry for the Environment and will highlight the important contribution that voluntary activities can play in the global effort toward GHG emissions reduction. Martina will speak about the initiatives to promote sustainable development within the Italian industry and the voluntary Carbon Footprint programme started in 2012, engaging a large number of Italian corporations and associations on this path. Successful sustainability strategies in a low growth economy Rodolphe dArjuzon, Verdantix, Global Head of Research The tough global economic conditions have led to the reevaluation of many corporate sustainability strategies. In turn sustainability leaders have been challenged to show how sustainability really adds value to their organisations. So what are the key ingredients of a successful sustainability strategy today? And what do CEOs really think about sustainability?10:30 – 11:00 Coffee break | For a more detailed discussion meet the speakers directly after the session at the roundtables in the lobby.11:00 – 12:45 »Front loading« product development with sustainability considerationsDriving transformation Chuck Grindstaff, Siemens PLM Software, President and CEOin global markets We are witnessing an incredible amount of attention on sustainability in the industry. Traditionally PLM has focused on substance compliance after the design has matured. We now see a clear trend toward product development for the environment (DfE) as an integral part of design from the early concept phase itself. Clearly, there is an opportunity in the industry to tackle the problem in a holistic manner. This keynote session will focus on a framework for enterprise sustainability and will describe the use cases for DfE and the level of maturity of software automation implementations including PLM integration. From chocolate to solar heating Alfred T. Ritter, Ritter Group, Chair of the Advisory Board, Owner, Founder Moritz Ritter, Ritter Group, Member of the Advisory Board, Owner Being ecologically consequent means to think in generations. The third generation of the Ritter family gives us a fine example for lateral business development. For Alfred T. Ritter it is no contradiction to make chocolate and also produce ecological heating systems. For his son Moritz Ritter being »ecoquent« means that innovation does not need to be focused on the classical business fields. The Ritter Carbon Balance Method, developed together with PE, is a new way of using Carbon Footprints as a supervising instrument for the company and a new concept of corporate social responsibility. Full product transparency – How to cut the fluff out of sustainability Ramon Arratia, Interface, Sustainability Director EMEAI Ramon Arratia explains how a new world based on lifecycle assessment (LCA) and environmental product declarations (EPDs) can take us away from the past decade of corporate responsibility fluff and towards a more practical era where companies make real social and environmental gains that are based on hard facts. Sustainable dairy products Jan Dalsgaard Johannesen, Arla Foods Amba, Director Sustainability Jan Johannesen will present the key factors for a successful implementation of sustainability into the environ- mental strategy and the implications for the dairy industry.
