Preventing environmental effects of products: A life cycle and market-oriented approach in European environmental Law

The environmental consequences of mass production and consumption of our society are significant and increasingly worrying. The lack of a coherent vision to regulating environmental damages caused by products hinders effective reduction and prevention thereof. This project aims at finding out how various EU legislative acts integrate a life cycle approach and whether they provide for incentives to producers for improving the overall environmental impact of their products. A particular focus is put on the EU Ecodesign, Public Procurement, Waste Framework, and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directives.
