The Ecodesign and Energy Labelling policies constitute effective tools to save energy and resources while reducing CO2 emissions. Ecodesign allows to ban the least efficient products from the market, while Energy Labelling pushes consumers towards better products. The ambitious implementation of these policies is vital for the fulfilment of EU’s climate and energy targets in the context of the European Green Deal. We aim at ambitious requirements, both from an energy efficiency and material efficiency perspective, for all products that are regulated.
In June, the horizontal standardisation groups CEN-CENELEC Ecodesign Coordination group (Eco-CG) and its Task Force 2 working on Uncertainties, Tolerances and Anti-circumvention (Eco-CG/TF2) co-organised a workshop on the problem of rule-bending
