EcoDesign 10th Anniversary Conference

Dates: 
Thursday, 1 October, 2015

 

The Ecodesign Directive is 10 years old! An appropriate moment therefore to take stock of the 'experiences and lessons learned' from its ongoing implementation on more than 50 different product groups. If it's not broken, then don't fix it is our message, as the Ecodesign Directive comes under pressure from new environmental proposals.
