CECIMO submitted its reply to the open consultation on the product sustainability initiative, highlighting the pivotal role of machine tools and additive manufacturing technologies in the green transition.

The Sustainable Products Initiative, proposed by the European Commission (EC), can help to bring the needed changes in product design and production processes. At the same time, the European Commission must ensure that the Sustainable Products initiative sets requirements and parameters that bring clear and significant added value without negatively impacting the industry’s competitiveness. CECIMO submitted its reply to the open consultation on the product sustainability initiative, highlighting the pivotal role of machine tools and additive manufacturing technologies in the green transition.

The manufacturing sector must continue being a key contributor in developing the initiative and its instruments (in particular, the digital product passport). The path towards sustainable products will require significant changes throughout different value chains, impacting product design, material use, production processes, business models, and waste management.

Therefore, the sectors involved in this sustainable transition will have to receive appropriate support, as new costs (investment in new manufacturing technologies or adoption of new materials), additional administrative burdens, and the adoption of new business models, will certainly pose challenges. CECIMO will collaborate with the European Commission and other industry stakeholders on this very important matter.
