Joint industry statement on the Green Claims Directive: do not put in jeopardy private sector investment in sustainability

Ecommerce Europe, EuroCommerce, HOTREC, and Independent Retail Europe supports the proposal of the joint IMCO/ENVI report on the Green Claims Directive to require the Commission to establish a simplified verification system that allows traders to benefit from a presumption of conformity for certain environmental claims. However, we remain concerned about certain elements of their report to be subject to a vote in plenary. We call on MEPs to table additional amendments in the plenary session and/or call for separate votes on the matters developed in our joint statement.
