EUTA Recommendations for the Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation
The European Tech Alliance (EUTA) supports sustainable environmental consumption and the establishment of harmonised and European rules to this end. We endorse the objectives of the Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation (ESPR), which will set performance requirements for product groups including durability, reusability, upgradeability, and reparability.
We want to encourage the consumption of sustainable and circular products. We believe that ESPR should acknowledge the role of each actor in the value chain, adopt tailored rules specific to the products’ life cycle, and consult all involved parties to shape Digital Product Passports. Further clarification would also be welcomed, as well as alignment with other EU rules.
As the co-legislators are defining their positions on the ESPR, EUTA respectfully offers a set of recommendations.
