Films and presentations from the Ecodesign Conference 24–25 January now online

What is the role of the Ecodesign Directive in reaching climate and resource efficiency objectives in Europe?
The conference got great reviews! See the films and presentations as well as a conference summary here

Evaluations show that the Ecodesign Directive is one of the best performing European policies for achieving energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gases. However, we could set more stringent efficiency standards for appliances than is currently done, and update standards more regularly.

The Ecodesign Directive is also considered to be a key instrument in European efforts for improved resource efficiency, as Ecodesign standards can influence a number of product properties such as product durability, reparability and recyclability. There is however uncertainty on how to best proceed with these developments, and there may in some cases be a need to consider short and long term trade-offs.

The speakers and discussions cover new and innovative developments in research and market monitoring. Follow the discussions on how the European Union could continue to develop standards under the Ecodesign Directive.
