Product-specific EuP studies of LOTS 15 to 18

The relevance of other environmental aspects in addition to the use phase energy consumption of products

The Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC has had the potential to become one of the most influential policy instruments in the fields of integrated product policy (IPP) and ustainable Consumption and Production. This report deals with the relevance of other environmental aspects in addition to the use phase energy consumption of products and is based on the product-specific EuP tudies of lots 15 to 18 (Solid fuel small combustion installations, Laundry Dryers, Vacuum Cleaners and Complex settop boxes). The project was initiated by the “Products and Environment group” (PMgroup) and later guided and supervised by the “Sustainable Consumption and Production group” (HKP group) of the Nordic Council of Ministers.
