Towards greener products through ambitious EU legislation

ECOS, EEB, Friends of the Earth, WWF, INFORSE-Europe, CAN-E and Greenpeace are issuing regular position papers to comment the draft Ecodesign and Energy Labelling proposals from the European Commission. Positions paper have been published on numerous products, including computers, monitors, and imaging equipment (such as printers, copiers, faxes...).  Also, position papers have been presented regarding issues such as the revision of the energy labelling, and stand-by losses.

These position papers can be downloaded from the website managed by ECOS and Ökopol on behalf of EEB, CAN-E, Greenpeace Europe, WWF-EPO and INFORSE-Europe. Please note that most of these position papers relate to specific Working Documents issued by the European Commission at a specific date before a Consultation Forum discussion. Reading the related Working Document helps following the arguments put forward by the NGOs involved. However, these Working Documents become outdated the moment the European Commission publishes a further draft.
