By 2020, it is estimated that the Ecodesign Directive will save 400 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions within the EU – this is comparable to the Emissions Trading Scheme's (ETS) anticipated contribution to carbon dioxide reductions in 2020.

In addition to the 13 existing and 20 forthcoming ecodesign measures for products, over the next two years the European Commission will adopt measures for Business to Business (B2B) products, such as professional refrigeration, electricity transformers, industrial furnaces and ovens, and air-conditioning and ventilation. There are also plans to include ‘energy-related’ products in the ecodesign strategy: products which do not directly use energy themselves, but promote energy saving.
