Use of natural resources and materials in products is pursued as an important option for improving product sustainability and for responding to stakeholder demand.
As a consequence corporate natural resource targets are becoming more commonplace. At the 8th PCF World Summit “Renewable Resources in the Value Chain: A Viable Option for Reducing Environmental Footprints?” on 26-27 September 2012 in Berlin the viability of natural resource use in products will be explored, particularly in relation to carbon and environmental footprinting, including
- case studies on renewable energy and resource use: Experience, evidence and insights
- use of biobased materials in products: Initiatives, developments, best practices
- land-use and land-use change: Relevance and treatment in carbon and environmental footprinting
As always, the PCF World Summit will feature updates on carbon and environmental footprinting initiatives and international Product Category Rule development. Thereby the refinement and implementation of standards and tools hence remains a dynamic topic and its current status is presented and discussed at the 8th PCF World Summit.
