The aim of the Standardization Roadmap is to provide an overview of the status quo of standardization in the field of the Circular Economy, to describe the requirements and challenges for seven key topics, and to identify possible concrete needs for action for future standards and specifications. Standards and specifications can actively support the Circular Economy. They help unify terminology and interfaces. This ensures clear communication and an effective exchange of information between the various market actors in the cycle.

At a high-level kick-off event on 21 October 2021, representatives from the German ministries of the environment and economics (BMU and BMWi), and representatives from science, industry and society will provide an insight into the current developments of the Circular Economy and present the seven key topics of the Standardization Roadmap: Electrotechnology and ICT, batteries, packaging, plastics, textiles, construction & municipalities, and digitalization/business models/management.

All interested experts involved in the Circular Economy are cordially invited to attend the event to learn about the work on the Standardization Roadmap Circular Economy of DIN, DKE and VDI. We would be pleased if you would join us with your ideas and needs and help shape the Roadmap from January 2022 onwards, together with experts from industry, science, the public sector and civil society. The event is especially intended for small and medium-sized enterprises who want to participate in shaping the future.

Please register by 14.10.2021 at using the following code: nrmce.

The event is free of charge.

Further information on the agenda and speakers will be available soon.

We look forward to seeing you there!
