Frankfurt, December 2022 – Soon 2022 will come to an end, so EuroWindoor would like to take the chance and review the year. It was a challenging year with many important topics like the proposal to recast the EPBD, revision of REACH and RoHS, the recast of the CPR and much more.
The beginning of the year was over shadowed by the lasting impacts of the pandemic and even more from the war of aggression by Russia against the Ukraine. Despite this burden the European Union stayed faithful to their plan on becoming the first emission neutral continent by 2050. EuroWindoor is happy to have been able to give input on important consultations and having several meetings with representatives of the European Commission.
A highlight in 2022 was the successful conference “Daylight by EuroWindoor” at the glasstec in Dusseldorf. EuroWindoor was able to show with well-known experts the importance of daylight in buildings.
In addition, EuroWindoor got approached by the DG Joint Research Center to help the members of the JRC buildings team in getting a better understanding of the products in the window industry.
There are many more important and exciting topics that EuroWindoor already tackled in 2022 like the derogation to the exclusion criteria for Propiconazole or the proposal to recast the EPBD.
With all of these challenges still on going and new proposals coming 2023 will be surely as challenging and successful as 2022.
EuroWindoor wishes everyone happy Holidays and a happy New Year!
We hope that this holiday season brings you enormous happiness and peace in your life.
