We care

The EU Ecolabel is the European Union’s official ecolabel.

EU Ecolabel



The EU Ecolabel is the official ecolabel in the EU. The label makes it easy to choose from amongst the most environmentally friendly products available.

The entire life cycle of the product, from raw material to production, use, disposal and recycling, is included in the assessment, when drawing up the requirements for an ecolabelled product.

To ensure compliance with the EU Ecolabel’s tough requirements, EU Ecolabelled products are checked and certified through documentation and inspections.

EU Ecolabel
