The European Parliament’s Industry, Technology and Research (ITRE) Committee adopted Anni Podimata’s (Party of European Socialists, Greece) Report on energy labelling earlier this month. All compromise amendments were adopted. The Report supports maintaining the existing A-G energy labelling currently in operation in the EU, arguing that sticking with A-G labelling does not mean that policy makers cannot be innovative. The Commission will communicate a list of priority products, including construction products, considered for labelling, based on their energy saving potential, six months after this Directive enters into force.
CEMBUREAU insists that building and construction products should be excluded from the scope of the Energy Labelling Directive.
