European Economic and Social Committee's opinion on the Proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on common rules promoting the repair of goods and amending Regulation (EU) 2017/2394, Directives (EU) 2019/771 and (EU) 2020/1828 - COM(2023) 155 final
The premature disposal of reparable goods purchased by consumers leads to an increase in waste, and generate greenhouse gas emissions and more demand for valuable resources in the production of new goods. The objective of this proposal is to increase the repair and reuse of viable defective goods purchased by consumers within and beyond the legal guarantee. It is part of the implementation of the Green Deal and its objective of sustainable consumption.
