CONSULTATIONS: Sustainable consumption of goods – promoting repair and reuse

Deadline: 05-04-2022

(Source: European Commission)


This initiative promotes a more sustainable use of goods throughout their useful life. It will encourage consumers to make more sustainable choices by providing incentives and tools to use goods for a longer time, including by repairing defective goods.

It will also:

  • encourage producers to design goods that last longer and are easily reparable
  • help reduce unsustainable consumption and its negative impact on the global environment and climate
  • help build a circular economy.
