UK advisors call for greener products body

Britain's advisory committee on consumer products and the environment (ACCPE) has urged the government to create a "dedicated products organisation" to champion product policy and drive its implementation forward.

Its proposals build on an official UK strategy for sustainable consumption and production published last autumn (EED 26/09/03). See ACCPE third report.
