Online Event on Transparency co-hosted by the Policy Hub and MEP Delara Burkhardt

Tackling Misleading Claims and Empowering Consumers in the Textiles Sector

About the Event

As part of the Circular Economy ActionPlan, the European Commission is developing two key policies on transparency: Substantiating the Green Claims Initiative and Empowering the Consumers Initiative, which will require companies to substantiate claims they make about the environmental footprint of their products/services and will help consumers to play their role in a green transition. In light of this, the Policy Hub is organising a webinar co-hosted with Delara Burkhardt, aMember of European Parliament to discuss what is needed for an effective policy framework on transparency. At the same time, the event will mark the launch of the Policy Hub’s position paper on transparency reflecting on the key recommendations from the apparel and footwear industry.

During the event, the policymakers, and representatives from the industry and civil society will engage in an open dialogue on some of the remaining challenges surrounding transparency and the solutions necessary to stimulate sustainable customer behaviour, while also driving operational change within businesses. We will discuss what an effective policy framework on transparency should entail and how to leverage its potential. At the same time, during the event Policy Hub's recent position paper on transparency will be launched presenting key recommendations from the apparel and footwear industry.

Context

Transparency plays an important role in leveraging sustainability and reaching the ambitions of the EU Green Deal as it stimulates sustainable purchasing choices.  This is particularly important in a circular economy, where consumers play a crucial role not only through their purchasing decisions but also because of their role in repairing, recycling, or reusing a product. To make sustainable choices they must have access to reliable comparable and verifiable information. However, currently this is still a challenge due to the existing proliferation of environmental labels and claims, which confuses the consumers and may lead to misleading information.To ensure that consumers obtain reliable and useful information, businesses must substantiate claims they make about their product’s environmental footprint. This would not only empower consumers to make sustainable purchasing choices but also help companies and investors make more sustainable decisions. The upcoming Initiatives on Substantiating the Green Claims and Empowering theConsumer aim to address these challenges.
