Extracts from the joint press conference by Günter Verheugen and Stavros Dimas on an action plan to promote sustainable consumption, production and industry

52 views

At a joint press conference on 16 July 2008 in Brussels, Günter Verheugen, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Enterprise and Industry, and Stavros Dimas, Member of the EC in charge of Environment, presented a package of actions and proposals to improve the environmental performance of European products and stimulate the demand for more sustainable goods and production technologies. Improving the environmental performance and in particular the energy efficiency of products and stimulating their market uptake are the core objectives of a package put forward by the European Commission. A range of policies at EU and national level already foster resource efficient and eco-friendly products and raise consumer awareness, such as the EU framework for the eco design of energy-using products, labelling schemes, and financial incentives granted by Member States to those that buy eco-friendly products. The Action Plan will complement and integrate potential of these different policy instruments, and provide for new action where gaps exist.
