The Confederation of Swedish Enterprise has taken note of the Presidency’s second compromise proposal on the Ecodesign requirements for Sustainable Products Regulation (ESPR), dated February 10th, 2023. In the position paper are Swedish Enterprise’s comments and opinions.
Swedish Enterprise continues to support a regulation for ecodesign requirements for more sustainable products as it sees this an important step in the transition to a more circular economy in Europe and a vital part of the implementation of the Green Deal. Swedish Enterprise would like to refer to its earlier and longer position on the Commission’s proposal and its complementary position on chemicals in the ESPR. Swedish Enterprise finds that the Presidency’s new compromise proposal contains positive changes. However, parts remain unclear and there are problematic parts that require further clarification and processing.
