There are already more than 37 000 EU Ecolabel products on the market.
Most people in Europe want to buy environmentally friendly products, and firms are realising and meeting this demand.
The EU Ecolabel is recognised across Europe. The certification is a reliable and scientifically verifiable way to let your customers know that your company is increasing its environmental sustainability by manufacturing products or providing services of good quality with reduced environmental impact. The EU Ecolabel makes your products stand out against your competitors. It adds real value to your business credentials and company image and most importantly, helps to boost your sales figures and minimise your costs. For example, EU Ecolabelled hotels have reported reduced spending on home care products and samples, and savings on water and energy use, which has tangible economic and environmental benefits.
The criteria have been developed to ensure that the 10% to 20% most environmentally friendly products currently on the market can meet them. While the EU Ecolabel award is a realistic goal for producers, it ensures good performance and reduced environmental impact for consumers.
Thousands of products have been awarded the EU Ecolabel. Lots of small and large companies have decided to apply for the EU Ecolabel.
