This EU Green Week, we look at best practices in implementing solutions for environmental challenges.
EU Green Week—the biggest European conference on environment policy—kicks off this week under the theme of environmental implementation, offering a perfect opportunity to reflect on how the copper industry is reducing the impact of its operations on the environment and implementing EU laws.
On this occasion, the European Copper Institute has gathered best practices from our member companies on closing the loop for a more circular economy, reducing emissions and waste, improving water and natural resources management and supporting environmental protection.
These success stories follow—and often exceed—the strictest European standards set by the Water Framework Directive, Environmental Quality Standards, REACH and the Industrial Emissions Directive, among other legislation. Our members are also frontrunners in applying the EU Best Available Techniques (BAT).
