Scheduled from June 27-28, 2024, this event promises to be a melting pot of ideas, insights, and innovative strategies aimed at navigating the evolving landscape of regulatory compliance and sustainability within the automotive sector, CLEPA says.

The CLEPA flagship event is renowned for bringing together high-level stakeholders, including representatives from EU institutions, automotive OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers), and supply industries. The focus of this year’s event is particularly riveting, with discussions centered on pressing topics such as PFAS (Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances), the End-of-Life Vehicle proposal and the intricacies of implementing a product Carbon Footprint within the automotive supply chain.

Attendees can anticipate a treasure trove of insights directly from key decision-makers in the EU, shedding light on the future of automotive regulations and sustainability practices. The event promises an enriching experience where participants can listen to and engage with key industry figures deliberating on the sustainability of materials and products, a concern that has taken center stage in the global push for a greener future.

The 2024 edition of the CLEPA event stands out for its comprehensive agenda, offering a panoramic view of the legislative landscape impacting automotive suppliers not just in Europe but across other key markets including North America, Japan, China and India. The gathering also serves as a platform for exchanging views on pivotal automotive tools and initiatives geared towards material and sustainability-related reporting. Tools such as IMDS (International Material Data System) and SAQ (Sustainability Assessment Questionnaire) will be under the spotlight, underscoring the industry’s commitment to transparency and accountability.

Besides the in-depth knowledge sessions, the event promises ample networking opportunities. Attendees will have the chance to connect with industry peers, share insights and foster collaborations during high-level networking sessions, including a networking dinner. The wide array of topics, from chemical restrictions and sustainability reporting requirements to circular economy principles, ensures that the #CLEPAMRS2024 is an indispensable event for professionals committed to steering the automotive industry towards a more sustainable and responsible future.

Early Bird registrations are now open, inviting industry professionals to be part of this transformative event. The dates are set, the agenda is promising, and the opportunity for learning and networking is immense.

The 16th edition of the CLEPA Materials Regulations and Sustainability Event at the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Centre in Frankfurt is the place to be for anyone keen on shaping the future of the automotive industry.
