The European Steel Association - EUROFER, supports the establishment of a common and consistent assessment framework that will, in principle, reduce costs for industry by limiting the proliferation of assessment methods and labels.
This should help keep access to a single market without barriers to trade, and also ensure that the environmental impact of imported goods can be properly assessed. The initiative should also reduce the possibilities for greenwashing, where comparisons are made using inconsistent data and advantageous assumptions.
