PU Europe input to the OPC on the Sustainable Products Initiative
The Sustainable Products Initiative shall not widen the scope of the Ecodesign Directive to construction products.
PU Europe, the European federation of rigid polyurethane foam manufacturers, has been supporting the work of the European Commission services over the last months for a greener and more sustainable Europe, notably via the sharing of our views on the Substantiating Green Claims and Sustainable Products Initiative public consultations.
Our industry welcomes the opportunity of this open public consultation (OPC) to restate that we do not believe that this initiative shall include construction products made out of chemicals.
