About the event
With the increasing shift from fossil to bio-based products, safeguarding the sustainability of bio-based products and their compliance with a variety of European policy objectives is becoming an important topic.
The Horizon Europe sister projects HARMONITOR, SUSTCERT4BIOBASED and STAR4BBS assess certification schemes and labels (CSLs) and their use to ascertain the sustainability of bio-based products in the European Union.
Presentations will feature preliminary results from all three projects, including amongst others the overview of policy priorities in establishing sustainability requirements, the first outcomes of an open stakeholder consultation on the effectiveness and robustness of CSLs, biobased value chains and trade flows, the proposed monitoring system the three sister projects are designing, followed by a roundtable discussing the role of CSLs as a co-regulation instrument.
Finally, the event will feature a roundtable in which various stakeholders will be asked to present their views on the potential role(s) of CSLs in the future European Circular Bioeconomy and on the design of a monitoring tool for CSLs.
