Seminar on the role of UNE standards and the challenge of the ecological transition


The Spanish Association for Standardisation, UNE, celebrará el próximo 3 de diciembre la jornada online El papel de la normalización ante el reto de la transición ecológica organizada, en colaboración con CEOE to mark World Standards Day.

At the event, the Director General of European standardisation organisations CEN and CENELEC Elena Santiago will explain the European support framework for the standardisation of ecological transition policies.

Representatives of public (MITECO) and private entities (AOP) will also share their vision and experienceMITECO and MINCOTUR) y privadas (UNESID, ANFAC, AOP and AELEC).

The ecological transition is not only a great challenge facing humanity, but also a pillar of economic recovery. For decades, standardisation has addressed issues such as climate change, the circular economy, energy efficiency and environmental quality, harmonising good practices, establishing a common language and providing reliable tools that generate trust between all parties.

The contribution of standardisation to these areas adds significant support to the ecological transition that is useful both for public and private entities.
