Orgalime comments on the Draft Working Plan 2012-2014 under the Eco design Directive 2009/125/EC

Published: 14 February 2012

Policies & Issues: Environment

Orgalime fully supports Directive 2009/125/EC, which establishes a framework for the setting of eco design requirements on Energy related Products (ErP) addressing all environmental aspects related to such products from a life cycle perspective.

Our remarks are based on the experience that our industry, as the main affected sector subject to the Directive and its implementation measures has gained with the Directive so far, and aims at contributing to the establishment of an ambitious while realistic and workable programme for the years to come.
