The impact of European Accessibility Act on business

As of 2022, approximately 27% of the population in the EU over 16 years old has some form of disability, which translates to roughly 101 million people or one in four adults in the EU. This number is expected to rise due to an aging population and the increasing prevalence of chronic health conditions. These statistics highlight the importance of considering accessibility and inclusivity in business practices, especially considering the European Accessibility Act (EAA). Ensuring equal opportunities and accommodations for people with disabilities can positively impact society and the business landscape. The act aims to ensure that people with disabilities can fully participate in society and enjoy the same opportunities as everyone else.

By complying with the EAA, businesses can make their products and services more accessible to people with disabilities and reap the benefits. This whitepaper seeks to equip readers with insights on how EAA is impacting businesses, and what challenges they would face to comply with the act. Overall, the EAA is a positive development for businesses. It allows businesses to reach a new customer base, improve their reputation, and boost employee morale.
