EU4Environment hosts an online #workshop to introduce the Product Environmental Footprint (#PEF) methodology and its benefits for #manufacturing enterprises in Armenia.
On 13 March 2023, EU4Environment invites representatives from industrial enterprises, local authorities and agencies, business associations, and NGOs in Armenia to an awareness-raising workshop on the introduction of the Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) and the European Union Single Market for Green Product (SMGP) initiative. The event is open to all stakeholders interested in and working on issues related to green economy, circular economy, Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP), and environmental protection. The meeting is organized by UNIDO in collaboration with PRé Sustainability (the Netherlands) and national partners.
The event will be organized in a hybrid format and will present the PEF methodology and the benefits of introducing greener products in the country. The workshop will feature presentations and discussions with experts in the field and provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the concept of green or environmentally-friendly products. It will be hosted in both Armenian and English (with simultaneous interpretation). The workshop covers topics related to instruments and strategies to promote green products, including eco-labelling (specifying the current national situation), associated legislative background, and benefits for different target groups. The potential impact of applying the PEF methodology for Armenian enterprises exporting to the EU market will also be explored. The workshop will provide an opportunity for attendees to ask questions and engage in topical discussions.

Here, UNIDO is supported by Civitta, a consultancy firm with extensive experience in environmental and sustainability projects. “The implementation of the EU4Environment programme in Armenia is an important step in promoting sustainable production and consumption practices and their environmental benefits.” said Ms Anahit Simonyan, UNIDO Country Representative in Armenia. “We encourage everyone to take advantage of this unique opportunity and learn about environmental footprint in the country.”
