The IPTS (Institute for Prospective Technological Studies) is one of the seven scientific institutes of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC). Since 1994, we promote and enable a better understanding of the links between technology, economy and society. Our mission is to provide customer-driven support to the EU policy-making process by developing science-based responses to policy challenges that have both a socio-economic as well as a scientific/ technological dimension. Our work is undertaken, mainly, at the request of other Directorates General of the European Commission. In addition in recent years several assignments have been carried out for the European Parliament. IPTS collaborates closely with the other Institutes of the Joint Research Centre and multiple partners across Europe.
The Product Bureau team of the IPTS's unit of Sustainable Production and Consumption focuses its work in assisting the DG ENV, DG ENTR, DG ENER and other DGs with technical background studies on the product policy tools of EU Ecolabel, EU Green Public Procurement, Ecodesign and Energy label for numerous product groups.

Danish Standards

Danish Standards is a private commercial foundation. Our profits are ploughed back into the development of new activities for the benefit of society and the corporate sector. Our core activity is standardization but we also provide consultancy in how companies can benefit from using stardards. Our main areas are food safety, management systems and instruments in enhancing cleaner productions and consumption. Ecolabelling Denmark is an integrated part of Danish Standards and is responsible for the administration of the only two officially approved ecolabels in Denmark: The Nordic Ecolabel and the European Ecolabel.

The mission of the JRC is to provide customer-driven scientific and technical support for the conception, development, implementation and monitoring of EU policies. As a service of the European Commission, the JRC functions as a reference centre of science and technology for the Union. Close to the policy-making process, it serves the common interest of the Member States, while being independent of special interests, whether private or national.
