EU Circular Economy Policies are Impacting Lighting Product Design and Business Models

The presentation will give an overview of what regulators and consumers expect of products over the next 5-10 years and explore what this means for lighting product design and business models.
The EU is driving change through it’s Circular Economy strategy and an ambitious action plan, that address the products entire life cycle: a strategy to regulate the quality and variety of plastics used in products, increased information requirements on the chemical substances and critical raw materials contained in a product, promoting increased repair of household EEE products, requiring removable and replaceable components, additional waste collection and recycling requirements.
All these proposals have a direct impact on the design and marketing of lighting products in Europe.
The presentation will explain how the lighting industry, within LightingEurope, is engaging with regulators, consumers and NGOs to shape a policy framework that achieves the objectives of a Circular Economy and supports the industry’s competitiveness and innovation.
