Ahead of the launch of the 2015-2017 Ecodesign Working Plan, Coolproducts have produced a briefing explaining what products could appear in the Working Plan, and what products are at risk of being omitted due to attacks from anti-EU media.
This document clearly explains what the European Commission should do to ensure the Ecodesign Working Plan can be as effective as possible, and which products should be included and why.
It covers why ecodesign and energy labelling legislation matters, the benefits they have brought through reducing Europe's energy dependency on external countries and the positive impact they have had on the environment.
The briefing also explains why new products such as mobile phones should be included in the Working Plan, and what type of approach the European Commission should take in future.
