Consultation of the European Commission on the sustainability requirements for batteries

Batteries Directive Review

The European Commission launched a public consultation on the sustainability requirements for batteries.

The scope is not 100% clear, as it applies in principle to all batteries, but the focus is clearly on e-mobility and storage batteries. 

The contracting authority is not DG Environment, but DG Growth, from which it can be deduced that it fits in with the development of ecodesign measures for batteries.

Enclosed, you will find the answers of Eucobat to this consultation.
