The official voluntary mark for environmental excellence in the European Union is called the EU Ecolabel. The EU Ecolabel, which was established in 1992 and is recognized throughout Europe and the world, certifies goods that have a guaranteed, independently validated low environmental effect. High environmental standards must be met by products and services throughout their entire life cycle, from raw material extraction through manufacture and distribution to disposal, in order to receive the EU Ecolabel. The badge also pushes businesses to create cutting-edge goods that are robust, simple to repair, and recyclable.
Industry can provide genuine, trustworthy eco-friendly substitutes for conventional goods through the EU Ecolabel, giving consumers the power to make educated decisions and take an active part in the transition to a greener economy.
The European Green Deal identifies the biggest environmental challenges of our time, such as achieving climate neutrality by 2050, transitioning to a circular economy, and achieving the zero pollution ambition for a toxic-free environment. Choosing and promoting EU Ecolabel products makes a real contribution to these challenges. Stakeholders can also take part in pertinent efforts from the European Commission, such as the Sustainable Consumption Pledge and the EU Climate Pact, by joining or making the EU Ecolabel system more visible.
