Public consultation on Sustainable products initiative

The Commission would like to hear your views. You are welcome to have your say on the Sustainable Products Initiative, one of the deliverables of the Circular Economy Action Plan!

This initiative, which will revise the Ecodesign Directive and propose additional legislative measures as appropriate, aims to make products placed on the EU market more sustainable.

Consumers, the environment and the climate will benefit from products that are more durable, reusable, repairable, recyclable, and energy-efficient. The initiative will also address the presence of harmful chemicals in products such as:

  • electronics & ICT equipment
  • textiles
  • furniture
  • steel, cement & chemicals.

The feedback period runs until 9 June 2021 (midnight CET). Through public consultations, you can express your views on aspects of EU laws and policies before the Commission finalises its proposals.
