RAL Managing Director Thomas Roßbach opened the one-hour online event with an overview of the objective s and requirements of the European Green Deal and the associated changes in the framework conditions for RAL Quality Marks in private and public procurement. He concluded with an outlook for the RAL Quality Assurance system. In this, Roßbach emphasized that RAL Quality Marks with sustainability and environmental criteria have a clear competitive advantage.
Thomas Roßbach then handed over to Gerald Feigenbutz, who presented the RAL Quality Mark for PVC window profile systems as a best practice case. For Feigenbutz, the Green Deal objective of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in all economic sectors by 2050 results in new quality-determining characteristics for plastic products: As examples, he mentioned their climate-neutral production, freedom from pollutants or recyclability.
