Your efforts

Each member may decide about the level of involvement and contribution on their own. All participation is voluntary. Generally, it is possible to participate in an observer role, while getting actively involved, wherever considered beneficial or necessary. Our Working Groups meet on a quarterly basis. Task Groups are acting on behalf of their Working Group at a suitable level, depending on the related efforts and defined deadlines. Most meetings are held virtually. Exceptions are the yearly General Assembly in Brussels and a regular ECO EPD event in changing locations.

Yearly membership fees depend on the membership category. Please refer to the table next to this article for details.
