Sustainable Products Initiative

Sustainable Products Initiative


The European Commission has a public consultation open to encourage feedback on the Ecodesign Directive on consumer products. The main objectives of this regulation are to reduce the negative life cycle environmental impacts of products.


The directive includes proposal for the creation of a ‘digital product passport’, the objective of which is to drive mandatory procurement criteria towards sustainable sourcing and to prevent unsold consumer products from being destroyed.


The regulation is designed to support sustainable product choices primarily within electronics & ICT equipment, textiles, furniture, steel, cement & chemicals.


The public consultation is open until June 2022.


Eurofins I BLC is well placed to support you in selecting and managing sustainable materials within your products. We offer significant compliance testing to ensure your products meet chemical performance regulation and our Chem-MAP product can help you ensure sustainable chemistry up your supply chain. We offer specific testing to justify claims around vegan materials and biodegradability and we can trace your supply chain to raw material to ensure environmental and social sustainability claims can be justified.
