Creativity and Innovation + Sustainable Development = Good Design
Energy efficiency and environmental protection are of fundamental importance to the quality of life of current and future generations. The challenge is to combine energy supply, energy consumption and environmental protection with sustainable economic growth so as to achieve long-term sustainable development. This challenge is becoming more pressing in the context of climate change. The European Union’s environmental policy is based on the conviction that rigorous environmental protection rules stimulate innovation and business opportunities and that energy, economic, industrial, social and environment policies are closely linked.
The EESC is taking on a double challenge: that of fostering sustainable, innovative and creative design, and investing in sustainable public procurement by promoting a new, environmentally-friendly form of promotional gift.
The EESC, in cooperation with Designed in Brussels, is launching EESC Design ZeroNine in all 27 EU Member States. (…)/PRESS RELEASE/… see more information here
