What is the European stance on eco labels?

european eco label The European "Eco Flower" label represents the the European Unions efforts to produce a standardised eco label that will ensure products made across Europe can be labelled to show they are being produced in an "environmentally friendly" manner.

"The European Ecolabel is a voluntary scheme, established in 1992 to encourage businesses to market products and services that are kinder to the environment. Products and services awarded the Ecolabel carry the flower logo, allowing consumers - including public and private purchasers - to identify them easily. Today the EU Ecolabel covers a wide range of products and services, with further groups being continuously added. Product groups include cleaning products, appliances, paper products, textile and home and garden products, lubricants and services such as tourist accommodation."

Other eco labels such as embodied carbon labels and sustainability labels are obviously welcomes with the European community but, the flower label a good example of a multinational labelling system.
