Ecodesign & Energy Labelling

Ecodesign & Energy Labelling regulations

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 with a high environmental impact.

What we are working on

  • Co-lead the Coolproducts Campaign, a coalition of NGOs working at national and European level to fully materialise the potential of ecodesign and energy labelling policies;
  • Co-lead the Right to Repair campaign, a coalition of European organisations pushing for system change around repair and advocating for product design requirements to allow products to both last longer and be repaired whenever needed;
  • Contribute to improving the policy framework thanks to over 10 years of experience working all along the ecodesign process. We have a seat in the European Commission expert group dealing with ecodesign policies;
  • Deliver advocacy and communications campaigns;
  • Ensure the voice of environmental NGOs is heard at every step of policy development;
  • Improve heating appliances and electronics regulations to reduce the high emission levels and climate impacts of these product groups.
