Eelco Fortuijn from Electronics Watch will tell you about the policies in the EU and NL and how you can measure sustainability. Different kinds of sustainable labels exist but can you blindly trust them? How do they determine that a product is made in sustainable way? So come to this lecture and discover whether you are a sustainable consumer! Please note that there is a limited number (50) of spaces available.Electronics Watch works to protect the labour rights of workers in the global electronics industry. They do this by uniting the buying power of European government institutions. Together they aim to build a worldwide platform that monitors the policies of producers and suppliers in the industry. The UG is partner of Electronics Watch. Eelco is also director of GoedeWaar.nl. This organisation does research on how sustainable consumer products are, to help consumers make sustainable choices.
