Letter to support the consideration for social and due diligence aspects under the Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation
The inclusion of social sustainability and due diligence requirements within the scope of the Eco-design Regulation is an important step towards a more holistic and responsible product design and production process.
By integrating these dimensions, the Regulation will not only address environmental considerations but also recognise the complex interplay between environmental, social and ethical factors in modern product design and consumption. The inclusion of social sustainability and due diligence requirements within the scope of the Ecodesign Regulation will bring several socio-economic benefits.
With this letter, the signatories urge the Ministries of Economy and Environment of the EU Member States and the Permanent Representations’ Attachés for Environment and Competitiveness to support and strengthen the sound provisions proposed by the European Parliament.
