Make a ‘zero pollution pledge’
The pledges will promote the best available, ‘near-zero waste’ options. This means products and services that are proven to be less polluting over their whole life cycle, especially those awarded the EU Ecolabel. The aim is to provide people with more options, and clearer information on cleaner options.
There are two options:
- Through making a Sustainable Consumption Pledge which is a voluntary cooperation with businesses to increase the sustainability of production and consumption, thereby complementing other regulatory actions.
Companies are invited to make a voluntary pledge including a ‘zero pollution pledge’ to support sustainable consumption, beyond what is required by law. This initiative is part of the New Consumer Agenda.
2. Through the Climate Pact, you can also register pledges to prevent or reduce pollution. These options should also contribute to the EU’s net-zero greenhouse gas emission target by 2050.
