Helping consumers play their part in achieving a more sustainable economy is a key goal of the EU consumer policy revision.
The revision proposal aims to:

  • ensure that consumers obtain reliable & useful information on products, e.g. on their lifespan and repair options
  • prevent overstated environmental information (‘greenwashing’) and sale of products with a covertly shortened lifespan
  • set minimum requirements for sustainability logos & labels.

The objective of the proposed opinion is to enlarge the debate around the concept of cultural diplomacy by providing concrete recommendations and proposing actions to strengthen and optimise this innovative area of policy. We plan to focus on the reinforcement of the coherence of EU external policies and instruments; on the complementarity between the tangible and intangible heritage; on the link with climate change as a source of crisis; on the inclusion and empowerment of local actors, women and youth; on possibilities to develop concrete cooperation and partnerships between EU cultural Institutions and Civil Society Organisations (CSO) and their counterparts in third countries.

The proposals of the package will introduce a new era where sustainable products become the norm as well as Europe's resource independence.

The ‘REFIT’ evaluation concluded that while the current Regulation was generally fit for purpose, it could be better aligned with the European Green Deal and its design could be slightly improved. In this context, the proposal aims to replace the ODS Regulation, while maintaining a strict level of control.
