Towards a circular economy
The EU Ecolabel promotes Europe’s transition to a circular economy, where materials stay in a loop, so new products begin when old ones end. This drives manufacturers to produce goods that:
- Promote green innovation and sustainable industries
- Generate less waste and CO 2 when they are made and used
- Use energy, water and raw materials more wisely
- Last longer and are easier to repair
- Are easier to recycle.
