Integrated Product Policy : Orgalime comments on EP ENVI Committee Draft Report

Published: 31 March 2004

Policies & Issues: Environment

Orgalime believes that IPP should form a convincing strategy, which would achieve the ambition to serve as a guiding tool for better coordination and prioritisation of product related environmental policies, thus, providing coherence. For our industries, the EUP proposal, which is claimed to be a model under IPP, is already under way and aims at providing a framework for further legislative action on environmental product policy on our products.

To our mind, it is, however, still unclear, how IPP will link up with other legislative proposals currently in the legislative pipeline, which will have further impact on the competitiveness of our industries (e.g.: Thematic Strategies on Waste Prevention and Recycling and Sustainable Use of Resources).

In this position Orgalime recalls further important principles for a successful IPP strategy, such as opting for a balanced mix of measures, market orientation, priority to self regulation, stakeholder involvement, life cycle thinking and the spread of information and development of practical tools.
