Make-or-break aspects of the EU´s Sustainable Products Initiative, Strict Requirements for Intermediary Products

Your substances


Based on the success of the Ecodesign Directive, and in view of the failures of industrial policies to date, the SPI for intermediaries is a unique opportunity to ensure we kickstart a deep industrial transformation and accelerate progress towards climate neutrality.

Intermediary products are unfinished goods made from materials such as steel, cement and chemicals that require further manufacturing or transformation. They are produced by energy intensive industries and used in almost all sectors, including construction and automotive. Beyond substantial CO2 emissions, intermediary product manufacturing has a range of other harmful embodied environmental impacts such as water, land and air pollution, as well as an unsustainable use of natural resources.
