Established in 1992 and recognized throughout Europe and around the world, the EU Ecolabel is a label of environmental excellence that is awarded to products and services that meet strict ecological standards throughout their life cycle: from the extraction of raw material to the production, distribution and disposal of waste. Its purpose is to promote the commercialization of products and services that are more respectful with the environment.
The EU Ecolabel promotes the circular economy by encouraging producers to generate less waste and CO2 during the manufacturing process. The EU Ecolabel criteria also encourage companies to develop products that are durable, easy to repair and recycle.
It is a voluntary instrument for business, valid throughout the EU and in the EFTA countries (Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Liechtenstein).
What does the flower logo indicate?
When a product or service carries the Ecolabel logo of the European Union, it is guaranteed that they comply with strict environmental requirements throughout their life cycle, that is, not only in their manufacture (or in design and commissioning) but also during use and at the end of its useful life.
This is to say that they are products or services that limit the use of substances harmful to the environment and health, minimize the use of raw materials by using recycled materials and improve the performance and durability of the product, guarantee the energy savings or inform the consumer about the most appropriate way to use and dispose of it.
