Institute of Environmental Engineering at Kaunas University of Technology in cooperation with BUP invites you to the 4th international conference “Sustainable Consumption and Production: How to Make it Possible”.

The hybrid conference (online and on-place) takes place in KTU Santaka Valley, K. Baršausko str. 59 Kaunas, Lithuania on 10-11 of November 2022.

Please note that the deadline for submitting abstracts is 15 of October.

The conference is free of charge for 30 participants from BUP participating universities. For other participants there is a 150 Euro full fee, 100 Euro for online participants and 50 Euro for students participating online.

During the conference it is intended for researchers to examine the challenges arising when transforming economy and societies according to the European Green Deal roadmap.

In order for the EU economy to grow sustainably, we need to save our resources by using them wisely. It is clear that the linear model of economic growth used in the past can no longer meet the needs of modern societies in a globalized world. The future cannot be built on the principle of ‘take, produce, throw away’. Many natural resources are finite, so we need to find a way to use them both environmentally sound and economically. In addition, the optimal use of resources is in the economic interest of the business. The aim of the circular economy is to maintain the value of products and materials for as long as possible, to reduce waste and to use as few resources as possible, and to keep resources in the economic cycle so that they can be re-used to create new value.

Thematic areas:

• Mobilizing industry for a clean and circular economy;
• Supplying clean, affordable and secure energy;
• Building and renovation in an energy and resource efficient way;
• Accelerating the shift to sustainable and smart mobility;
• Designing a fair, healthy and environmentally friendly food systems;
• Preserving and restoring ecosystems and biodiversity;
• A zero pollution for a toxic-free environment.

Papers presented during the conference can be submitted to the “Environmental Research, Engineering and Management” (EREM) [Scopus; CiteScore 2021= 1,7; Open Access].
