The 2nd Stakeholder Workshop on Safe and Sustainable by Design chemicals and materials will take place on 22 March 2022. The aim of the workshop is to present and discuss with stakeholders the draft methodology to define Safe and Sustainable by Design criteria for chemicals and materials. The workshop will be a full day online meeting.
The registration process in now closed and no further registrations are accepted as the number of participants is already exceeding the initial capacity. However, given the interest and the continuous requests that we are receiving, the workshop will be broadcasted live on YouTube to allow all stakeholders to follow the discussions.

The European Green Deal defines a clear vision and objectives to put European economy and society on a sustainable pathway, in particular to move towards climate neutrality, a circular economy and a zero pollution/toxic-free ambition. Key for this societal transformation will be the transition to a safe and sustainable by design approach, so that chemicals, materials and products are designed, produced and used in a way which does not harm people and the environment.
The Circular Economy Action Plan provides an agenda for achieving a cleaner and more competitive Europe, where safe and sustainable products are the norm, improving their durability, reusability, upgradability and reparability, and addressing the presence of hazardous chemicals. The Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability aims to catalyse the shift towards chemicals and materials that are inherently safe and sustainable, from production to end of life, and announces that the Commission will develop criteria on safe and sustainable-by-design by 2022.
