Position paper - Consultation response to the Inception Impact Assessment on the sustainable products initiative

3 Nov 2020

On Tuesday, 3 November AmCham EU submitted its response to the European Commission’s inception impact assessment on the sustainable products initiative. With this key initiative, the Commission promises to make products placed on the EU market more sustainable.

While AmCham members fully support and embrace the circular economy transition and are actively committed in closing the carbon loop, we wish to underline the need for maintaining the main principles of a legislative framework that is delivering already excellent results. The contribution therefore calls on the European Commission to ensure the coherence of any new legislative initiative with existing regulations addressing products in different life phases.
