“Green single market for green growth”: neither good for consumers nor for manufacturers

Having reviewed the Draft Commission Recommendation on the use of Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) and the Organisation Environmental Footprint (OEF) methods, both Orgalime and ANEC are extremely disappointed that, notwithstanding their joint opposition to the draft proposal, the Commission should once again have opted for yet more big brother ‘voluntary’ regulation. 

Orgalime sees this proposal as representing an unreliable tool for creating demand for better and greener products in the EU, while it risks exposing companies to unfair competition and to market distortion as consumers would base their buying decisions on misleading information.
