Lawmakers in the European Parliament and Council have reached a provisional agreement on a new “Ecodesign” framework that aims to establish sustainability requirements for products across the EU. The agreement seeks to improve the environmental sustainability of products, promote circularity, and enhance energy efficiency. It also includes the establishment of a “Digital Product Passport” to provide consumers with information on products’ environmental sustainability. The agreement bans the destruction of unsold textiles and footwear, addressing concerns about environmental impact. The regulation now awaits formal adoption by the EU Parliament and Council before taking effect.
