#REUE2023 Conference  

October 12th 2023 




The effects of climate change are an increasingly present reality today, with environmental awareness becoming a growing priority. 


Tackling the climate crisis is therefore everyone's responsibility, from the public and private sectors, but also from NGOs, academia and consumers, which is why it requires concerted responses aimed at all stages of the life cycle of products and services, from production to disposal, including consumption. In this context, giving continuity to the various sustainable production and consumption strategies is the only possible way to build a prosperous future for new generations.  


The Directorate-General for Economic Activities (DGAE), as the Competent Body for awarding licences to use the EU Ecolabel, has progressively invested in promoting this environmental certification system at national level, implementing constant improvements in the EU Ecolabel communication strategy. 


Since 2021, with the aim of giving visibility to and celebrating World Ecolabel Day, the DGAE has organized a virtual conference dedicated to presenting the latest news on the EU Ecolabel and its contribution to society - #REUE2021 | Promoting a Sustainable Transition and #REUE2022 | On the Road to Sustainable Consumption. 


In 2023, DGAE celebrated World Ecolabel Day, on October 12, by holding the #REUE2023 Virtual Conference under the motto "Building the future", which highlighted the EU Ecolabel's contribution to the development and implementation of public policies that also promote sustainable production and consumption. 


This conference was attended by various speakers from DGAE, the European Commission (DG ENV), the Secretariat-General for the Economy, the Directorate-General for Consumer Affairs and Turismo de Portugal, I.P..

Conference #REUE2022 | On the Road to Sustainable Consumption

October 13th, 2022 


With the aim of reinforcing the promotion of the EU Ecolabel system, the Directorate-General for Economic Activities (DGAE) organized the #REUE2022 virtual events cycle. 


The EU Ecolabel system is a European instrument of a voluntary nature, which aims to reduce the negative impacts of production and consumption, promoting products and services with a high level of environmental performance. In Portugal, the DGAE is the competent body for granting licences for the use of EU Ecolabel and is responsible for promoting this labeling system. 


In 2022, the year in which it celebrated 30 years of existence, this system remains dedicated to ensuring a greener future and building a more resilient Europe, thus contributing to the objectives of the European Green Deal, in particular to achieving the ambition in terms of circular economy, climate neutrality and zero pollution. 


With the aim of promoting the REUE system among consumers (B2C and B2B), DGAE held the #REUE2022 virtual conference on October 13th under the motto “On the Route to Sustainable Consumption”. The event featured two interventions by international experts: Björn-Erik Lönn, President of the Global Ecolabeling Network and Anna Norberg, head of press and public relations at the Swedish Competent Body for the EU Ecolabel (Ecolabelling Sweden).
