The newly created UEIL Sustainability Committee held its first meeting of the year on the 11th of February. On this occasion, all of the Committee’s working groups and sub-groups gathered to exchange information on the latest activities carried out and to discuss next steps.
When it comes to environmental policies, the Raw Materials working group will be focusing its efforts on developing a calculation scheme to enable members to provide information on their carbon footprint, and to provide members with a toolbox to measure and reduce their carbon footprint. The Energy Efficiency working group will focus on product lifetime improvements, product efficiency and improved performance, carrying out a series of communication activities including the gathering of testimonials and positive case studies, and the development of a lexicon and infographic.
The Society & Economy working group also presented an ambitious action plan including a series of educational and awareness campaigns. Lastly, the Communication working group shared its progress on the update and population of the UEIL website, as well as a couple of initiatives related to the collection of members’ sustainability journeys.
The Committee will meet again on the 29th of April.
