What is the "EU Ecolabel"?

EU Ecolabel in Montenegro

European Eco-mark "EU Ecolabel" is a voluntary scheme, established in 1992 to encourage businesses to market products and services that meet high standards of environmental performance and quality. Products and services that got Eco- mark carry a flower logo, allowing the customers – public and private buyers included, to identify them easily.

Today EU Eco-mark covers a wide range of products and services, with further groups constantly being added.

Groups of products include cleaning products, devices, paper products, textile and home and garden products, dopes and services like tourist accommodation.

While the logo can be simple, ecological criteria behind it are fierce, and only the best products, which meet high standards of environmental performance, have the right to carry EU Eco-mark.

Furthermore, this is the mark whom customers rightfully believe. Criteria is set on European level, after a lot of consultations with experts, and the mark itself is given only after verifying that product meets the high standards of ecology and performance.

The EU Eco-mark is quickly growing brand. Many manufacturers that wish to sell their products across Europe have understood the benefits that European Eco-mark brings. Products that carry the Flower logo can be placed on market through entire European Union.

Voluntary nature of scheme means that it does not create barriers for commerce. Contrary – many manufacturers find that it actually gives them advantage over competition.

EU Ecolabel criteria consider the whole life cycle of a product, from the extraction of raw materials, through manufacture, packaging, distribution, use and disposal of the product.        

Flower logo helps manufacturers, retailers and service providers to get recognition for good standards, while helping the customers to make reliable choices.

The EU Ecolabel is a part of a broader EU Action Plan on Sustainable Consumption and Production and Sustainable Industrial Policy adopted by the European Commission on 16 July 2008.
