AIJA’s Commission Month: Environmental and Energy Law Commission Day


Katarzyna Kuźma

On 18 November 2020 join AIJA’s Commission Month and participate in the Environmental and Energy Law Commission Day. Katarzyna Kuźma, Partner in DZP’s Infrastructure & Energy Practice, will be speaking on sustainability requirements in tenders during a workshop addressing highlights of national reports regarding circularity.

About the Environmental and Energy Law Commission Day:

  • Date: 18 November 2020  /  14:45 - 19:00 CET

Most world’s economies are not maintaining a good pace with today’s demanding and abrupt changes. This lack of innovation strongly affects our environment. Raw materials are shrinking and its traditional linear system does not support a sustainable economy anymore.

Thus, a circular economy, by disrupting current means of production, consumption, and waste, prompting a prolific environment for innovative endeavors, should be a solution to the scarce linear economy of raw materials and energy.

Policies in Asia, Europe and the Americas are incorporating mandates on eco-design and shared responsibilities between national governments, companies, and individuals. These mandates and cooperation between parties are challenging traditional legislative methods to include a more circular economy thinking/approach into several areas of practice.

Our E&E Commission wants to give you an overview within the fascinating and innovative field of circular economy.
