Intertek's Health, Environmental & Regulatory Services expert, Katie Livesey, Sustainability Project Lead will be offering three identical sessions covering the following topics:
Introduction to HERS Team
Product Labelling Case Study
Opening Remarks from Katie Livesey
Sustainability Certification Programme Case Study
- Responsible and Ethical Sourcing Standards for Products
Details: Interpreting requirements of various reporting and certification standards can be a challenge for manufacturing companies. This session will help attendees understand what options, standards and certifications exist to help demonstrate good manufacturing practices (GMP) and provide guidance on how to prove compliance. Our expert will outline current frameworks while integrating practical examples (case studies).
- Circular Economy
Details: The Circular Economy is an economic system which is intended to eliminate waste and the continual use of resources, and promotes reuse, recycling and more. Can standards help, or do they hinder development in business activities? This session will go in-depth and define what the circular economy is and what opportunities there are for manufacturers.
- Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
Details: An environmental certification program is a seal of approval which shows that a product meets a certain eco-labelling standard. It provides customers with visible evidence of the product's desirability from an environmental perspective. This session will provide background information on LCAs and will discuss carbon footprints as well as EPDs (ISO 14021 will be included).
