Demonstrate to your stakeholders and the market that your product is sustainable through Ecodesign
Ecodesign is the process of designing and developing products to minimize their environmental impacts throughout their life cycle, from raw material extraction to end-of-life disposal. Ecodesign is a dynamic concept that has broadened its scope from energy efficiency to circularity. Ecodesign considers not only the energy consumption of products but also their material efficiency, durability, reparability, reusability, recyclability and environmental footprint.
Ecodesign should be an integrated part of any credible EGS policy
Applying the principles and structure of Ecodesign demonstrates that you are willing to go beyond simply focusing on your individual product’s environmental footprint, to a commitment to sustainability as the default principle for your product design and development processes. Ecodesign is a ‘proven’ method and framework that will allow you to more easily absorb new sustainability requirements for products, whether it is related to repairability, durability etc.
Mandatory requirements for market access
The Ecodesign for Sustainable Product Regulation ESPR) establishes a framework to set Ecodesign requirements for specific product groups to significantly improve their circularity, energy performance and other environmental sustainability aspects. The ESPR will set performance and information requirements for almost all categories of physical goods placed on the EU market.
