Green deal proposals: newly adopted circularity policy mix

A new circularity package proposed in the EU’s circular economy action plan was adopted on March 30th. Four key initiatives have been approved by the Commission to address products’ life cycle environmental impacts:

The proposal builds on the Ecodesign Directive and will ensure minimum ecodesign and information requirements are developed for almost all categories of physical goods placed on the EU market.

ESPR proposal regulation aims to:

  • Set minimum criteria for energy efficiency, circularity, and overall reduction of climate and environmental footprint of products.

  • Set requirements to ensure information on the environmental sustainability of products is made available.

To meet these objectives, the European Commission (EC) is introducing a digital product passport mandatory for all products under the ESPR and the new labelling requirements.
