EEB Response to the Construction Products Regulation Proposal, 12th July 2022

However, the EEB also note the fact that the current proposal is misaligned with the Paris Agreement ambition, and nor does it grant an effective contribution to 2050 carbon neutrality objectives. This underlines the need for the CPR revision to be better guided by Europe’s environmental objectives for 2030 and 2050. Additionally, a closer alignment with the ESPR should be reflected.
