Eco-Labels ConPolicy moderates parliamentary evening regarding the Blue Angel

At the end of last week the United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals. Goal Nr. 12 aims at fostering sustainable production and consumption. In this context eco-marks play an important role. In Germany, the Blue Angel plays a pivotal role in this area. A consumer survey showed that 92 % of Germans know the Blue Angel. – Is it therefore time to relax or should this success be used as a starting point for even more activities?

The parliamentary evening organized by the Blue Engel aimed at addressing these questions. Here, Minister Dr Hermann Aeikens from Saxony-Anhalt, the President of the Federal Environment Agency Maria Krautzberger and Prof Dr Edda Müller, Vice-Chairman of the Jury Umweltzeichen, engaged in the debate. ConPolicy-Director Prof Dr Christian Thorun moderated the evening.
