A bright circular future for rerefined base oil


One year ago, the European Commission launched its Circular Economy Action Plan (CEAP). As one of the next steps, the European Commission will put forward a Sustainable Product Initiative to make sustainable products the norm and the default choice for businesses and consumers. The creation of a digital product passport providing information on the sustainability performance of the product lies under this framework. As part of this initiative, the issues of greenwashing and misleading green labels will be addressed with the Substantiating Green Claims Initiative. This initiative will require companies to substantiate claims they make about the environmental footprint of their products/services by using standard methods for quantifying them. The aim is to make the claims reliable, comparable and verifiable across the EU and reduce green washing. This should help commercial buyers and investors make more sustainable decisions and increase consumer confidence in green labels and information.


While the EU currently does not have specific rules on substantiating green claims, a legislative proposal is expected to be published by the European Commission by Q2 2021.


The EU Initiative on sustainable products and substantiating green claims would be a positive development to demonstrate the value of re-refined base oils for lubricant production. Our industry takes this opportunity to highlight its role as sustainability enabler within the lubricant industry, through the supply of high-quality regenerated products and sustainable solutions we are providing to our customers and more broadly consumers. GEIR will continue to follow this initiative and coordinate with UEIL on any activities.
