Eco-innovation is one of Europe's competitive advantages

The Eco-innovation sector has an estimated annual turnover of €227 billion yearly – around 2.2% of the EU’s GDP, it directly employs 3.4 million people across Europe. Environment Commissioner Janez Potočnik said: "The innovation challenge for this Century will be making our resources go further – doing more with less – and reducing the impact of our activities. Europe must be in the lead in meeting that challenge if we want to be competitive in a world of increasing resource constraints. Worldwide demand for environmental technologies, products and services is growing rapidly even in these difficult times, and it's an area where Europe has much to offer. This is a plan for green jobs and green growth." ARCTIK is proud to support the European Commission activities in the field of eco-innovation by providing public relations, communications and exhibitions services. In the course of 2012, ARCTIK has participated in five international conference and fairs across Europe to promote the new Eco-Innovation Action Plan.
