The European Commission has announced a new provisional agreement that aims to “help make sustainable products the new norm” in the European Union. In particular, the provisional agreement for “more sustainable, repairable, and circular products” – which was reached between the European Parliament and the Council on the Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation this week – aims to ensure that products “last longer, use energy and resources more efficiently, [are] easier to repair and recycle, contain fewer substances of concern, and include more recycled content,” while also “leveling the playing field for sustainable products on the EU’s internal market and strengthen the global competitiveness of businesses offering sustainable products.”  Recycled Marine-Waste

The new law, as first proposed by the European Commission last year, will build on the existing Ecodesign Directive by “progressively setting performance and information requirements for key products placed on the EU market.” The Commission says that it will “adopt and regularly update a list of products identified on the basis of a thorough analysis and criteria notably related to the EU’s climate, environment and energy efficiency objectives” in order to ensure “predictability and transparency” on which products will be covered and when.

The Commission – which proposes new EU laws and policies and ensures the proper application of existing legislation – confirmed that it will give priority to “highly impactful products, including textiles (especially garments and footwear), furniture (including mattresses), iron and steel, aluminum, tires, paints, lubricants and chemicals, as well as energy related products, ICT products and other electronics.”  Recycled Marine-Waste
