INFORSE´s Positions:

INFORSE-Europe has a permanent seat in the Consultation Forum together with WWF, Greenpeace, CAN-Europe, EEB, ECOS and other NGOs. We cooperate on our inputs to the process as well as more generally in the Cool Products Campaign and collect our positions etc. on our common website Ecodesign of Products: Views of Environmental NGOs on the EuP Policy. We develop common position to better argue for high energy efficiency requirements and good consumer information via labels etc.

Together with many other NGOs, INFORSE-Europe has agreed an Energy Efficiency Manifesto, see Manifesto on Cool Products website.

In the Consultation Forum INFORSE-Europe works for:

  • strong, but practical possible energy efficiency standards that moves the market by excluding inefficient products currently on the market
  • fast implementation of measures, typically one year after they are approved
  • a multi-step approach with stronger energy efficiency regulation 2-3 years after the first step and update after 5-6 years to include new technical progress.
  • information to consumers on energy consumption of products, including standby consumption and typical annual consumption.
  • only use of voluntary agreements where the size of the market is small, typically smaller than 200,000 units sold per year, there are minimal free-rider problems with companies outside the agreement, and a preparatory study has documented efficiency potentials and effects of possible measures (typically of internal market regulation and of a voluntary agreement).

For each product type, INFORSE-Europe adopts a specific position together with ECOS and other NGOs.
