The proposal for a new Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation (ESPR) seeks to create a Single Market for sustainable products and improve access to sustainability information through the Digital Product Passport (DPP). The Regulation will only be successful if it ensures full harmonisation across Member States and drives competitiveness for European industry. We recommend to: keep the product-specific approach, include a provision on transition time, keep DPP provisions workable and clarify provisions on substances of concern, broaden the definition of environmental footprint, align the ESPR with other legislation, strengthen harmonization and improve the provisions on unsold consumer products.
