Stakeholders invited to participate in “Televisions” Ecolabel review

A study to inform the revision of the EU Ecolabel criteria for the product group ‘Televisions’ is being launched by the Joint Research Centre's Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (JRC-IPTS). Relevant stakeholders are invited to take part in the process.

Frequent consultation with experts, manufacturing company stakeholders, consumer organisations and NGOs is foreseen throughout the revision process. Stakeholders will be regularly informed about the progress of the study, will have access to preliminary results and draft documents and will be invited to respond to questionnaires and participate at stakeholder meetings.

The review is intended to update the EU Ecolabel criteria so that it effectively reduces energy consumption, lowers environmental damage related to the use of natural resources, and reduces the quantities of hazardous substances used in manufacturing. All background information, as well as announcements of ad-hoc working group meetings, will soon be available on the project website.
