Orgalime participates in Commission stakeholder consultation on Integrated Product Policy

Published: 10 June 2005

Policies & Issues: Environment

Orgalime is concerned about the coherence in the Commission's approach on environmental product policy for our sector as the Commission announced in its recent IPP consultation document in the context of the IPP pilot case on mobile phones that it will "come forward with a discussion document that will consider ways to promote implementation of the IPP approach in companies, including if appropriate general obligations for specific products".

This is happening only a few weeks after the final adoption of the so-called EuP directive, which establishes a framework for the integration of environmental aspects from cradle to grave for energy-using products. In any case, the IPP consultation document and the second draft report on the IPP mobile phones pilot case fail to estblish a true balance between the three pillars of sustainable development: environmental, social and economic.
