Final Report - TESTNET (Towards European Sectorial Testing Networks for Environmental Technologies)

Project ID: 18311
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


This is the final activity report of TESTNET, a European project selected to design, develop and test an environmental technology verification (ETV) system and bring it to market.

This document presents the profile of the rising trend, originating from North America of ETV programs. Just as ecolabelling provides guidance to consumers seeking to purchase environmentally friendly products, verification programs have been designed as a means to accelerate market acceptance of innovative technologies. This is achieved by providing technology users with information about performance, thereby decreasing the uncertainty in purchasing decisions.
