Eco-Labels Around the World

Label

Today, more than 30 years after the first eco-label appeared, there are more than 400 different eco-labels that can be found on various products and in almost every industry.

Getting an eco-label is beneficial not only for the producers but also for the consumers that are buying products with these labels.

When company puts an eco-label on its products it makes a statement about controlling the impact of its business on the environment. Also, these labels can improve their business reputation in the marketplace and differentiate them from the competitors.

Nowadays, when consumers are more aware of the impact of their purchasing decisions on the environment, they more often choose to buy eco-friendly products. By using an eco-label on their products, companies raise awareness about the environmental issues and help consumers make a greener choice. Products with these labels are more appealing to consumers, since they can easily spot the eco-label symbols and find the product they’ve been looking for.
