With the 20th Roundtable, the conference returned home to its birthplace. In 1994, the 1st Roundtable was held in Graz with the support of the City of Graz and the Ministries of Innovation & Technology and Environment, and already had 300 visitors. In the meantime, numerous countries have hosted the other 18 events.
The 2021 conference was organized by “StadtLABOR” a SME working on Innovations for Urban Quality of Life (https://www.stadtlaborgraz.at/), in cooperation with the ERSCP Society (https://erscp.eu/). ERSCP stands for the European Roundtable for Sustainable Consumption and Production, a society that organizes and promotes activities in the field of Sustainable Consumption and Production. Part of this are a series of conferences in the field of Sustainable Consumption and Production and Cleaner Production since 1994.
The ERSCP Society was officially established in 2012. The start-up and early preparations were conducted by Arnold Tukker (Leiden University), Jaco Quist and Renee Wever (both from Delft University of Technology). Since October 2014 there has been a board of 7 persons, elected by the members of the ERSCP society, while a new board will start its term in January 2017. The society and the board can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
