EU Ecolabel 

EU Ecolabel is the official ecolabel of the European Union. To achieve certification, the products are assessed from a life cycle perspective from raw material to waste. The products have to meet strict environmental, functional and quality requirements. These requirements are tightened on a continuous basis to ensure further advances.
