FA Draft Proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on establishing a framework for Eco-design of End Use Equipment

Published: 18 December 2002

Policies & Issues: Environment

Orgalime industries generally recognise the need and share the overall objective of integrating environmental aspects into product design. However, we believe, that in order to make this a valid framework directive for a future holistic approach to product related environmental policy, more work needs to be done to clarify the concepts and define the requirements manufacturers would have to follow. In particular, existing and still to be developed voluntary measures should be taken into account before adopting any implementing measure.

In the enclosed position paper, Orgalime points out the importance of arriving at a coherent and well-structured proposal after discussing it in detail with the relevant stakeholders, who will in the end ensure the success or the failure of this approach, namely industry.

This Position Paper is supported by COCIR, CECIMA, EECA-ESIA and ELC.
