Created in 1992, the European Ecolabel (EE) is the only European official eco-label that can be used in all European Union member countries, which expresses the environmental quality of consumer products and services into both “Business to Business” and “Business to Consumer” (excluding pharmaceuticals and food products).

These services and products have to meet specific, identified criteria depending on the product groups, which reduce overall environmental impact.

The EU Ecolabel is voluntary, based on multiple criteria, where a third party awards the use of the label to indicate overall environmental preferability within a particular product category based on life cycle assessment.

The European Commission now proposes to participate to an online consultation, which forms part of a broader reflection on the future of the EU Ecolabel. It is aimed at identifying opportunities to increase the EU Ecolabel uptake, focusing on the most promising product/service groups.

Questionnaires target consumers, EU Ecolabel license holders, retailers, industry representatives and others, and will be online until 3rd March 2019. French, German, Italian, Spanish and Polish versions of the questionnaire will be available soon!
