Consumul și producția durabile

01-11-2017

Creșterea durabilă reprezintă unul dintre principalele obiective ale Uniunii Europene. Având în vedere penuria mondială de resurse naturale, principala provocare pentru producători și consumatori este „să realizeze mai mult consumând mai puține resurse”. Pentru a aborda provocarea respectivă în această perioadă caracterizată prin schimbări climatice rapide și o cerere de energie și de resurse în continuă creștere, Uniunea Europeană a introdus o gamă largă de politici și de inițiative care au drept ...

Creșterea durabilă reprezintă unul dintre principalele obiective ale Uniunii Europene. Având în vedere penuria mondială de resurse naturale, principala provocare pentru producători și consumatori este „să realizeze mai mult consumând mai puține resurse”. Pentru a aborda provocarea respectivă în această perioadă caracterizată prin schimbări climatice rapide și o cerere de energie și de resurse în continuă creștere, Uniunea Europeană a introdus o gamă largă de politici și de inițiative care au drept obiectiv consumul și producția durabile. Acestea ar trebui să ducă la îmbunătățirea performanței de mediu globale a produselor pe durata ciclului lor de viață, să stimuleze cererea de produse și tehnologii de producție mai bune și să ajute consumatorii să facă alegeri în cunoștință de cauză.

Research for PECH Committee - Small-Scale Fisheries Markets: Value Chain, Promotion and Labelling

15-04-2016

The revised Common Market Organisation (CMO) is a great opportunity for small-scale fisheries (SSF) producers to better access the market and to compete successfully with imported fishery products. The aim of intervention is to give the consumer the opportunity to buy a fresh, safe, and environmentally-friendly product, and to guarantee an acceptable income to local SSF fishers.

Organic farming legislation - Revision of regulation on organic production and labelling of organic products

20-10-2015

The development of organic production is a political objective of the EU. Although its organic market has constantly expanded, the EU's organic land area still represents only 6% of the total agricultural area and the difference between EU demand and production is covered by growing imports. To overcome the regulatory obstacles to the development of the sector and increase consumer confidence in the EU organic logo, in March 2014 the Commission adopted a proposal for a regulation on organic production ...

To overcome the regulatory obstacles to the development of the sector and increase consumer confidence in the EU organic logo, in March 2014 the Commission adopted a proposal for a regulation on organic production and labelling of organic products, repealing Regulation No 834/2007. EU Agriculture Ministers agreed in June 2015 on a Council general approach to the proposal. On 13 October 2015, the Parliament's Agriculture Committee voted on its draft report on the proposal and the mandate to begin negotiations with the Council.

Framework for energy efficiency labelling

01-10-2015

On 15 July 2015 the Commission proposed a new regulation on energy efficiency labelling as part of its summer energy package. The new regulation would contribute towards meeting the target set by the October 2014 European Council of improving energy efficiency in the EU by 27% by 2030. The proposed regulation would restore the A-G scale for energy labelling; create a mechanism for rescaling products that can accommodate further improvements in energy efficiency; establish a product database on ...

On 15 July 2015 the Commission proposed a new regulation on energy efficiency labelling as part of its summer energy package. The new regulation would contribute towards meeting the target set by the October 2014 European Council of improving energy efficiency in the EU by 27% by 2030. The proposed regulation would restore the A-G scale for energy labelling; create a mechanism for rescaling products that can accommodate further improvements in energy efficiency; establish a product database on energy efficiency; and introduce a safeguard procedure to improve national market surveillance. Detailed legislation on energy labelling of household appliances would be adopted as delegated acts. While the proposal is supported by consumer and environmental groups, industry groups are concerned that a major change in energy labelling could have a negative impact on producers and consumers and act as a disincentive to energy efficiency. The Parliament has in the past supported a closed A-G scale on energy labelling as a way to provide a stronger incentive for consumers to buy more efficient products.

Understanding energy efficiency

01-10-2015

The European Commission considers energy efficiency as a strategic priority for the Energy Union, and promotes 'energy efficiency first' as a principle. It proposes to rethink energy efficiency fundamentally, and treat it as an energy source in its own right. By using energy more efficiently, energy demand can be reduced, leading to lower energy bills for consumers, lower emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants, reduced need for energy infrastructure, and increased energy security through ...

The European Commission considers energy efficiency as a strategic priority for the Energy Union, and promotes 'energy efficiency first' as a principle. It proposes to rethink energy efficiency fundamentally, and treat it as an energy source in its own right. By using energy more efficiently, energy demand can be reduced, leading to lower energy bills for consumers, lower emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants, reduced need for energy infrastructure, and increased energy security through a reduction of imports. Worldwide, energy efficiency has contributed to substantial savings in energy consumption. The implementation of energy efficiency policies is challenging, and the full potential of energy efficiency is far from realised, for financial, behavioural and regulatory reasons. Obstacles include high upfront investment costs, access to finance, lack of information, split incentives and rebound effects. The EU has set energy efficiency targets and a set of regulations to promote energy efficiency across the economy. As part of the Energy Union strategy, the European Commission plans to propose specific strategies for heating and cooling, and for the transport sector. Key pieces of energy efficiency legislation are to be reviewed in the coming two years, and implementation of the existing framework enforced. Finance for energy efficiency will be given special attention. The European Parliament has repeatedly called for stronger EU energy efficiency targets and policies, and is current preparing own-initiative reports on the Energy Efficiency Directive and the Energy Union strategy.

Organic production and the European Union

16-02-2015

Organic agriculture views itself as respecting natural cycles by refraining from the use of genetically modified organisms, by limiting the use of synthetic chemical products and by ensuring animal welfare. Organic production, regulated and supported at EU level, is controlled, certified and labelled. The specifications list also adapts to different kinds of production. Initially a niche market, organic agriculture now represents a European market worth more than EUR 22 billion a year, with demand ...

Organic agriculture views itself as respecting natural cycles by refraining from the use of genetically modified organisms, by limiting the use of synthetic chemical products and by ensuring animal welfare. Organic production, regulated and supported at EU level, is controlled, certified and labelled. The specifications list also adapts to different kinds of production. Initially a niche market, organic agriculture now represents a European market worth more than EUR 22 billion a year, with demand continuing to increase. The organic sector, seeking a vision for the future, must respond to certain challenges, particularly in its coexistence with conventional agriculture, but also in terms of producer and consumer confidence in the system and its values, in a context of growing international exchanges. In March 2014, the European Commission proposed to revise the entire legislative framework of the organic sector, in particular with the aim of reducing the current derogation practices, reviewing the control system and the import regime, simplifying the legislation and cutting down on the red tape. Some initial reactions to these proposals seem rather critical. The first reading legislative appraisal has started in the European Parliament, but the announcement of the new "Juncker Commission" of its intention to withdraw this proposal by mid-2015 should an agreement not be reached by then could change the context.
