The EU funded SwitchMed programme on sustainable consumption and production invites all Tunisian companies that export to Europe to attend its awareness raising event taking place on 4 April in Tunis, where the potential policies and the consequences for companies exporting to the EU will be presented and discussed.
This event is the start of a project in which a number of Tunisian experts will be trained in developing the Product Environmental Footprint, according to the (complex) EU rules and procedures. In a next stage, these experts will be applying these rules in a pilot project on one or two relevant Tunisian product categories. This pilot will provide the learnings for all Tunisian companies exporting to the EU.
The deadline for application is 28 March 2017.
The SwitchMed sustainable consumption and production programme aims to promote a switch by the Mediterranean economies towards sustainable consumption and production patterns and green economy, including low-emission development, through demonstration and dissemination of methods that improve resource and energy efficiency. It also seeks to minimise the environmental impacts associated with the life cycle of products and services and, where possible, to promote renewable energy.
