The organisers of the ‘European EcoScore' initiative call on the Commission to propose ‘a reliable European EcoScore' – a mandatory label providing consumers with information about the environmental impact of products manufactured or sold on the EU market. The label would be based on a standardised calculation, starting with food and clothing but ultimately aiming to cover all types of products.

The organisers of the ‘Save cruelty-free cosmetics - Commit to a Europe without animal testing' initiative call on the Commission to propose legislation, which would strengthen and broaden the existing EU bans on animal testing for cosmetics and the marketing of ingredients tested on animals.
