ECO-MODULATION OF FEES FOR “GREENER” PRODUCTS | CONCERNS AND CHALLENGES

Eucolight - Publications
20 July 2021

Eco-modulation task force response to the 2018 Directive 2018/851/EU on Waste, the WEEE Compliance Promotion Exercise and the 2019 Commission’s draft Guidelines on general minimum requirements.

Objective of the task force is to proactively set the framework, principles and mechanisms for a harmonised eco-modulated fee scheme in Europe which is compatible with both:

  • existing EPR implementation
  • and the producer community’s current calls for system change as outlined in “An enhanced definition of EPR and the role of all actors”.

The task force set out to explore:

  • which criteria and products can be selected for eco-modulation,
  • how to develop a simplified fee modulation,
  • how to construct the compliance framework for both producers and PROs,
  • the operational aspects of bonus/malus,
  • how to embed Ecomodulation in a competitive PRO landscape
  • and how the fee can be utilized as a tool to influence purchasing behaviour and stimulate sustainable product design.

​The work of the task force is on-going, and the final results will be presented at an event in December 2021.
