Design for a circular economy: reducing the impacts of the products we use

Ecodesign standards and energy labelling have been a huge success story, improving the efficiency of everyday products, reducing their environmental impact and cutting energy bills for consumers.
 
However, despite these successes, there are other environmental impacts of products that ecodesign does not address but could, particularly resource use.

For this report, we interviewed stakeholders involved in the ecodesign process about how the system works and how it should be improved as the UK creates its own process post-Brexit.
