    Our views on the Commission’s proposal are summarised in the attached paper: https://goo.gl/NSvjpG We are in favour of Option 5 because Ecodesign & Energy Labelling requirements for lighting help mitigate climate change and help EU citizens save on their bills, and we strongly support the efforts made by the Commission intention to better integrate lighting in a Circular Economy, notably by introducing requirements on the removability of...
