Event description

Description

The European Consumer Organisation (BEUC), and its Portuguese member organisation DECO - Portuguese Association for Consumer Protection, are organizing, in Oporto at Alfandega Porto Congress Centre, Portugal, on 12 October 2018, the International Conference: Consumers and Environmental Justice.

This conference will explore the unequal impact on different groups of consumers of environmental hazards, such as air pollution, extreme weather conditions and contaminants in food. It will look at these developments both from a prevention and an enforcement perspective, in order to identify implementable solutions for consumers.

The consumer detriment due to environmental hazards has increased in recent years. Not only because of ever more frequent extreme weather events. Other factors are the adoption (or absence) of public policies to mitigate their effect, as well the attitude of companies. Different groups of the population are affected differently by these policies and attitudes, generating asymmetries among citizens.

This conference intends to launch a reflection and a debate on the link between environmental justice and consumer policy and on the role that both consumer associations and public and private players should play on this environmental crisis.

Therefore, we wish to have a wide range of experts to discuss several issues, such as Extreme Weather Events and Insurances, Environmental Health and Redress Mechanisms, Emissions of Air Pollutants and Public Enforcement, Healthy Food and The Risk of Exclusion.
