Eco-labels are often confused with environmental labels, defined as labels relating to the environmental performance. But, there are some differences; eco-labels are a subgroup of environmental labels, and have their own specifications. They are granted by an independent third party, not influenced by the company who is seeking certification for its products. The product can be granted an eco-label only if it’s compliant with the criteria of the labelling scheme. That said, it’s also completely conditional on the Country’s local rules and regulations – which could mean that eco-friendly means one thing in Chile and another in Alaska!

An eco-label provides a straightforward message to the person standing in front of a product. They allow customers to make a greener choice and easily notice if a product is with an ecological advantage.
