Entering the Digital Age for Industrial Activities – 15 October – Online

Friday 15 October, 10:00-12:00 CEST

Please register here


When it comes to industrial pollution, it’s time to enter the digital age! The European Environmental Bureau (EEB) invites you to join us in exploring the developments on the Pollutant Release and Transfer Registers (PRTRs) in the context of the European Union.


As we approach the 20th anniversary of the Aarhus Convention entering into force, it is the prime moment to delve into the upcoming opportunities and plans for the EU Industrial Emissions Portal to catch up with the digital age and work for us.


We will identify best practices and policy recommendations through these burning questions:

  • How can we receive up to date information?
  • How can we address the comparability of permit conditions in force?
  • How can we deal with reporting issues?
  • How can we promote compliance promotion and benchmarking?
  • How can we put the “date into context”?
  • How can we better and faster deliver pollution prevention at the source?
  • How can we enable performance tracking towards the Zero Pollution Ambition?
