Ecodesign as a complex approach to product design, considering all impacts on the environment during the whole life cycle of a product, is an important factor in the concept of circular economy. The presented paper focuses on the issue of current development in the field of the European ecodesign regulation, emphasizing mainly the topic of the shift from energy efficiency to resource and material efficiency. Future requirements on ecodesigned products and possible changes in the Ecodesign Directive are presented and discussed.
