European Parliament proposes resolution on durable and repairable consumer products

The European Parliament wants to support a longer product lifespan for tangible goods and software through a series of recommendations.  

According to the press release, 77% of EU consumers would prefer to repair goods, rather than buy new ones. With this in mind, seven explicit recommendations are made clear to ensure consumers can enjoy durable, high-quality products that can be repaired and upgraded.


The resolution also calls upon the Commission to consider a ‘voluntary European label’ to better inform consumers on the durability and reparability of products.
