News: EU Ecolabel recognised above other other ecolabels
Thursday, 16th March 2017
Recent Belgium study finds EU Ecolabel recognition with the general public (49%) higher than for all other ecolabels in Europe, except the Energy label.
Respondents claimed to make ecological purchases and that ecolabels play an important role in making a considered choice. More than 80% of respondents indicated that they trust the EU Ecolabel, particulary young people. Hence, the EU Ecolabel performed extremely well compared to other ecolabels - see chart. Only the Energy label scored better.
EU Ecolabel criteria for Televisions extended and amended
The TV's criteria have been extended and amended to reflect changes in the efficiency of TV's and pending the adoption of a new set of energy efficiency classes to replace the existing energy labelling and eco-design requirements for TV's.
