A Guide to Green Reforms in Retail


Prepare for a set of new green legislative measures that will impact every stage of a product's lifecycle.

The EU is introducing a range of new green legislation that will impact the full lifecycle of a product. This includes the Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation, which will introduce digital product passports, and the Green Claims Directive which will regulate greenwashing.

In this guide, we examine the key reforms most relevant to the retail sector, providing an overview of the main provisions and the practical steps you need to take to prepare your business. We also analyse the consequences of non-compliance and examine how these proposals compare to UK legislation.
