On 5 December 2013, under the contract 07.0307/2013/668244/ENV.A.1, Arctik was appointed by European Commission DG Environment to communicate the European Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) pilot programme at fairs and conferences around Europe.

What is ETV?

ETV stands for the Environmental Technology Verification pilot programme. Although new environmental technologies can make a significant difference in terms of resource and cost savings, they often never reach the market simply because they are new and untried. ETV aims to change this by providing verified evidence that innovative environmental technologies are credible, scientifically sound and perform as they claim. The end product is an ETV Statement of Verification, an independent third-party validation of the performance of a new technology. The document ascertains a technology’s performance and differentiates it from that of competitors.

Starting in December 2013, Arctik identified relevant events in Europe where ETV could be promoted and explained. In agreement with the European Commission, Arctik consultants participated in two international events.

In June 2014, Arctik kicked-off the official promotion by participating to the World Bio Energy Conference 2014. Arctik engaged with business and media representatives during the matchmaking and the exhibition fair organised as part of the World Bio Energy conference, describing the ETV process and answering questions from more than 35 businesses.

In September 2014, Quentin Galland attended the Resource Efficiency and Waste Management Solutions conference and exhibition in Birmingham. Over three days, Arctik met with approximately 50 business delegates and media representatives and discussed the ETV process.

By engaging the stakeholders, Arctik helps to position ETV among interested businesses and organisations, driving interest and following their progress.

In addition to these official contracted events, Arctik works on disseminating ETV in the framework of its sub-contract with DG Environment on communicating the Eco-Innovation Action Plan (EcoAP).
