LightFair 2019 exhibitors prepare their SSL wares
Member of the European Parliament Maria Da Graça Carvalho hosted an event in the European Parliament to discuss opportunities for setting a balanced and effective product policy landscape.
Europe is known for its high quality and innovative products backed by a growing regulatory framework. This years-long knowledge and experience together with the EU institutional change put us now in an excellent position to reflect and ensure the framework delivers and is tailored to accelerating Europe’s circular economy transition.
During the event, organized by APPLiA, DIGITALEUROPE and LightingEurope, MEPs, European Commission representatives, civil society, and product manufacturers put forward their ideas for the EU product policy framework and its potential to contribute to the transition towards a circular economy. Maria Da Graça Carvalho, MEP “After the efforts in the past legislature for an ambitious EU legislative framework in the energy and climate fields, the Parliament has to make now a further step towards enforcement, starting with the Product Policy Framework. Let’s move towards consistent rules and a functioning internal market, in cooperation with the EU Member States and the European Commission.”
