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.

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.
