ENEC’s first year of activity has been fruitful. Through the delivery of two baseline studies, presenting exceptional examples of ecodesign in industry and co-ordinating a toolbox for ecodesign, ENEC are pushing the boundaries of knowledge on significant ecodesign issues.
The network’s successful first year is motivating and establishes an excellent basis for future work.
Our strategy for 2014 is focused on the development and delivery of vital research projects, to continue our internationally ground breaking research outputs. For example, the important results of the network’s Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) study provides leverage for policy-makers, to motivate the wider industrial community to become ecodesign active, as we prove that ecodesign pays dividends and makes financial sense.
During 2014 the network will accelerate its work in policy, education and industry to make ecodesign happen. In doing so, the network will draw on its wide-ranging expertise and networks on resource efficiency and the circular economy amongst others.
The following lists some key credentials of the ENEC partnership:
- 51 companies in pilot projects
- 465 company professionals trained yearly
- More than 415 companies adopting ecodesign across 5 EU Regions
- 19 year full time professionals ENEC

ENEC met on 27th and 28th of November in Brussels to celebrate our first anniversary.
We were honored by the presence of the European Commission and in particular the speech of DG Enterprise represented by Michael Bennet and Cesar Santos.
