As senior environmental specialist, you will be part of the European Standards & Environment Team (EST), which is responsible for ensuring compliance of all of our clients products to applicable European regulations and standards. Your primary role will involve monitoring and reporting on the regulatory issues relating to Product Eco-design and Energy Labeling Regulations and other emerging regulations on Product Sustainability such as ESPR (Eco-design of Sustainable Product Regulation).
