Commission action plan for SIP/SCP needs coherency too……

Orgalime challenges the Commission’s approach that sustainable product policy should be realised through a re-opening of the just recently established framework Directive on Eco Design of Energy using Products. “We believe that there are better ways to implement the EU’s 2020 energy and climate change objectives. Considering that the EU’s objectives can to a large extent be realised with technology already existing today, the primary issue today should be on how to get these technology solutions to the market”, said Orgalime’s Secretary General, Adrian Harris. “For our sector, the added value of the action plan would lie in complementing the EuP Directive with measures that help to foster the take up of products in the market place rather than re-opening a Directive for which implementation is just on its way”.
