Ecolabel is the European Union eco-label which distinguishes products and services which, while guaranteeing high performance standards, are characterized by a reduced environmental impact throughout the entire life cycle.
The ecological standards that need to be observed, in order that a product or service could obtain this brand, are determined by the European Union’s Committee for the Ecologic Brand, organized in specific subgroups for different products and services, and composed by representatives of various social classes (industry, services’ furnishers, small and middling firms, artisans and their professional organizations, trades-union, sellers, importers, environmental organizations and organizations of consumers’ defence).
The considered environmental aspects are: the quality of air and water, ground conservation, rubbish reduction, energetic saving, conduct of natural resources, prevention of global greenhouse effect, ozone coating conservation, environmental safety, acoustic pollution and biodiversity.
Ecolabel is an important marketing instrument, which has been recognized by the 25 European Union’s Countries (and also recognized at an international level), and it makes it possible to expand the client target and improve the productive processes, in order to rationalize the natural resources’ consumption. It is an important element of security for the customer from the point of view of the environmental quality and product’s performances.
Sigeambiente is able to offer assistance to the interested organizations for the internal implementation of the management system necessary to obtain the brand and to follow the entire process of obtaining and maintaining the EU Ecolabel.
