CEC Reaction to EP Plenary Vote on the Ecodesign Regulation

Monday, July 17, 2023 - 19:45English
The European Footwear Confederation (CEC) is the voice of an industry willing to further contribute to the green transition in the EU and worldwide. In this regard, together with our members and stakeholders’ network, we welcome any EU legislative initiative – including the proposal for the Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation (ESPR) – supporting companies toward the circularity of the footwear industry, and our commitment does not diminish despites these difficult times. We therefore support research and investments on ecodesign approaches with the opportunities offered by the latest technologies. However, we consider that the ESPR should consider the specificities of each product, as well as the readiness of the related industry. We are thus concerned on the outcome of the European Parliament’s Plenary Vote this week that includes the footwear industry as a priority for ecodesign, and reiterate our call for an enforceable Regulation.
