The Ecolabel is one of the most iconic symbols of the EU. Every day, the Ecolabel points hundreds of thousands of people towards the most sustainable products and services.
We very much welcome the initiative taken by the Commission for setting a strategy for the next 10 years with the aim of making the scheme more efficient and effective. This is an opportunity to expand the Ecolabel to more product groups relevant for consumers and green public/corporate procurement.
In this position paper, prepared in collaboration with the European Consumer Organisation (BEUC), we provide comments to support the development of the strategy.
