EU public consultation to 9th June 2021 on the Sustainable Products Initiative, targeting mainly recycling and reuse. This Initiative stems from the Green Deal and the new Circular Economy Action Plan and aims to promote products which have low climate impact, are resource efficient, reduce waste and enable circularity. Amongst proposed measures under 2A Design for sustainability are requiring information on how products are “safe-by-design” and have substituted chemicals of concern, requiring information on chemicals or banning the use of chemicals which inhibit recyclability. Two of the proposals under 2B Digital Product Passport also address chemicals in products.
