Batteries placed on the EU market should become sustainable, high-performing and safe all along their entire life cycle. This means batteries that are produced with the lowest possible environmental impact, using materials obtained in full respect of human rights as well as social and ecological standards. Batteries have to be long-lasting and safe, and at the end of their life, they should be repurposed, remanufactured or recycled, feeding valuable materials back into the economy.

There are many, increasingly loud voices calling for better regulation of advertising, which is accused of encouraging overconsumption. Numerous calls for a ban on advertising polluting products are published. However, advertising creates growth and generates many jobs. Could it not be that advertising is just a scapegoat?

The EESC own-initiative opinion will set out recommendations for making advertising more compatible with the challenges of the green transition while respecting its contribution to the economic development of the European Union.
