Stakeholders views on the Ecodesign Directive: An assessment of the successes and shortcomings

As part of the European Parliament's European Implementation Assessment of the Ecodesign Directive (2009/125/EC), Christian Egenhofer, Eleanor Drabik, Monica Alessi and Vasileios Rizos contributed a Briefing Paper entitled "Stakeholders views on the Ecodesign Directive: An assessment of the successes and shortcomings".

The Briefing Paper summarises the opinions of EU-level and national stakeholders on successes in, failures of and challenges to the implementation of the directive and the underlying reasons. Experts from seven Member States were interviewed: Belgium, Denmark, Germany, the United Kingdom, Poland, Portugal and Finland. These interviews are complemented by a literature review of available studies, reports and position papers.

The European Implementation Assessment of the Ecodesign Directive, of which this Briefing Paper is part (from p. 38 onwards), is published on the European Parliament's Think Tank website:
