EU Green Week – Circular Economy – Designed to last: sustainable and connected products

In a circular economy products need to be designed for closed loops, but also to be used for longer and more intensively. The Sustainable Product Initiative (SPI) will set minimum design requirements to eliminate inbuilt obsolescence, and promote durability, reparability and upgradability. Why do products fail and how will SPI make a difference? What circular business opportunities will SPI generate? This session will provide some answers, looking particularly at the world of fashion and textiles.

This event will be held in Bruxelles but the live streaming will be available
