The European Commission is behind schedule in the development and implementation of ecodesign and energy labelling policies.

A new analysis commissioned by the EEB and ECOS for Coolproducts shows that such delays are estimated to cause 10 million tonnes (CO2eq) of additional emissions every year, threatening the 55% emission reduction targets, and cost citizens 40 billion on their energy bills by 2030.
