ETV Environmental Technology Verification

​​​​EU ETV Programme (Environmental Technology Verification) is a Third Party Verification, on a voluntary basis, intended to facilitate greater environmental technology innovation and uptake by end users by providing independently validated and credible performance data.

Environmental technologies can contribute by increasing resource efficiency, finding cleaner alternatives to current technology or introducing measures to mitigate or prevent the harmful effects of human activity on the environment.

The benefits of environmental and eco-innovations are further enhanced by the policy win-win dimension of these technologies.
